AKA Call For CEO

  9 July 2013

The Australian Karting Association is calling for a Chief Executive Officer. Mick Doohan (Chair, Australian Karting Association Ltd) advised the AKA has now commenced a national search for a suitable person.

The position is full-time on a salary to be decided. It entails a huge list of responsibilities and skill sets (see the document below).

It is incredibly important that a suitable person be appointed to this position.

The AKA has appointed CEOs in its former guise - Robert (Bob) Edyvean (19/5/97 to 31/12/00) and Colin Wilson (1/1/01 to 6/2/13). Wilson resigned just over two years into a 3 year contract.

Applications for the new role need to be made by the close of business, Monday 22 July.

Reader Poll:

We'd like to know what you think - is previous karting experience important to this role? Should the new AKA CEO already have a knowledge about Aussie karting? Or is knowledge or involvement in the field irrelevent to the position? Vote NOW!
