Victoria Racing Club Appoints Kylie Rogers as New CEO

The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) has announced the appointment of Kylie Rogers as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 September 2024.

Ms. Rogers transitions to the VRC from her role as Executive General Manager – Customer and Commercial at the Australian Football League (AFL). Her extensive career spans over 25 years across sports, commercial sectors, media, and major events.

Neil Wilson, Chairman of the VRC, highlighted that Ms. Rogers was chosen from a competitive pool of candidates through an intensive six-week selection process. He emphasized her significant experience and leadership qualities as pivotal factors in her appointment.

“Kylie Rogers is a distinguished executive in Australia, known for her contributions to the AFL, Mamamia, and Network Ten,” Mr. Wilson stated. “Her expertise in commercial growth, digital and marketing platform development, and customer experience enhancement aligns well with our strategic vision. We are excited to welcome her as we advance our local and global ambitions in racing, events, and media, including the Melbourne Cup Carnival.”

Ms. Rogers expressed her enthusiasm for leading the VRC, acknowledging its global significance and rich history. She looks forward to working with the VRC team to elevate the club and the Flemington precinct.

The outgoing CEO, Steve Rosich, will depart on 31 July 2024. During his tenure, Mr. Rosich led the VRC through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, achieving record membership and significant milestones, including a new media and wagering partnership with TAB and Nine Entertainment.
