2032 Organising Committee Announces Inaugural CEO

American executive, Cindy Hook, has been appointed by the local organising as the inaugural chief executive officer of the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will be held in Brisbane.

Hook was announced as their CEO on Tuesday after the organising committee engaged with 50 candidates over the past 6 months.

Hook originally moved to Sydney in 2009 and later became the CEO of Deloitte Australia in 2015, before running the Asia Pacific operation from Singapore, which she left in June.

Commenting on her appointment, Hook, said: “The opportunity to lead the Olympics and Paralympics is once in a lifetime.”

“The idea of setting up the organization, building the team, creating a vision and driving to a smooth delivery of Brisbane 2032 is very exciting and I expect it will be both challenging and rewarding.

Hook also said that during her time at Deloitte, she made regular visits to Brisbane, and will relocate to the city before starting her new role in February.

On announcing the new CEO, Bribsane 2032 president, Andrew Liveris said Hook is a person that knows how to run a multi-billion dollar business on time, while keeping to a budget.

“I’m so pleased that we’ve found someone with a deep affinity for Australia while also understanding what is required to turn Brisbane 2032 into a household name across the world,” Liveris said.

In May, Ministry of Sport reported on the most recent names to join the organising committee’s board.
