Football Federation Australia has announced the appointment of two new directors to the FFA Board.
Peter Tredinnick is a partner in corporate law firm Moray & Agnew and a former Australia international, while Chris Rex is the Managing Director and CEO of Ramsay Health Care and a former Sydney FC director.
Tredinnick is appointed to a casual vacancy after the recent decision of Ron Walker to retire after nine years of service. Rex fills the third appointed director position provided for under the FFA's Constitution.
The Chairman of FFA, Frank Lowy, AC, has welcomed the new directors to FFA.
"Peter and Chris are part of the renewal process that's an essential element in any governance model, whether it's business or sport," said Lowy.
"They bring fresh thinking, vast experience in commercial life and particular insights to football from their personal involvement.
"Their addition will give FFA a new impetus as we implement our Strategic Plan towards 2015.
Lowy paid tribute to the contribution made by Ron Walker.
"Ron came onto the board in 2003 following the Crawford Report and has been with us through the major transformation of the game since then. With his wealth of experience he made his mark in Board deliberations and brought valuable counsel to the table," said Lowy.
"He will remain a firm friend of football in the years ahead."
