Executive Transactions

The Singapore Badminton Association "has re-elected" LEE YI SHYAN "as its chief for the fourth running term." This "is likely to be his last two-year term as president." Lee, who is also Senior Minister of State (Ministry of Trade & Industry & Ministry of National Development), "has served at the helm" since '08. The association's constitution "allows for a president to serve a maximum of eight years" (STRAITS TIMES, 6/10). ... Former BORIS BECKER coach BOB BRETT "will be announced this week as the Lawn Tennis Association’s new performance director." It "will be his responsibility to clean out the furred-up arteries of the British game, and discover a few young prospects to carry the flag in the post-Murray era." Brett "is a long-time ally" of LTA CEO MICHAEL DOWNEY, having worked alongside him as a “high-performance consultant” at Tennis Canada." He "also has his own tennis academy in Rome" (London TELEGRAPH, 6/9). ... Long-time Australian Cricketers' Association CEO PAUL MARSH "has edged out" IAN PRENDERGAST to become the Australian Football League PA's new boss "at a potentially tumultuous time, with Essendon players expected to receive show-cause notices in coming weeks." Marsh "will move into the role in September and the association hopes Prendergast will stay on at least until then" (THE AGE, 6/10). ... Former Super Rugby sides Stormers and Brumbies physician DR. RYAN KOHLER is the new Australian Rugby Union supremo, "with a job to develop, implement and monitor concussion guidance at community level, and consult with team doctors at all levels" (Sydney DAILY TELEGRAPH, 6/10).
