Perth lobbyist Jason Marocchi and former WA bureaucrat Peter Conran are among nine members appointed to the federal government's inaugural sport advisory council.
The council was set up in July last year to provide strategic advice to both the chief executive of Sport Integrity Australia, David Sharpe, and Minister for Sport, Richard Colbeck.
“Experienced in the complex wagering regulatory regime in Australia, anti-money laundering, and complex integrity issues, her leadership will be invaluable to the success of the Advisory Council,” Mr Colbeck said.
Ms Kenny said she looked forward to working with the other advisory council members, which include Messrs Marocchi and Conran.
Mr Marocchi is the managing director of GRA Partners, having served in the role for more than 12 years, while Mr Conran has more than 30 years of policy and leadership experience including as former adviser to the Barnett and Howard governments.
Paralympics Australia boss Lynne Anderson has also been appointed to the council, along with former cricketer James Sutherland, former tennis player Scott Draper, governance export and former rower Margot Foster, former NSW Police Commissioner Ken Moroney and former National Children’s Commissioner Megan Mitchell.
