The West Coast Eagles will add three new members to its board, including former Treasurer Ben Wyatt, while Football West is welcoming two new directors.
The West Coast Eagles will have three new board members after the WA Football Commission last week approved the appointment of former Treasurer Ben Wyatt, premiership player Rowan Jones and public relations adviser Nicole Moody.
Unlike the Victorian clubs, West Coast doesn't hold elections for its board roles and the trio was hand-picked for the positions.
Ms Moody, who is managing director of Hunter Communications, will become the second woman on the board, joining Shell Australia's Zoe Yujnovich. Former deputy Prime Minister Julie Bishop was previously a director.
Former Seven West Media executive Chris Wharton will leave after eight years in the role, leaving nine directors.
The others are chairman Russell Gibbs, who is chief executive of property group Hawaiian, club chief executive Trevor Nisbett, Australian cricket coach Justin Langer, BHP non-executive director Terry Bowen, and lawyer Paul Fitzpatrick.
Football West chairman Sherif Andrawes, who was this week re-elected to his position along with deputy chairman Will Golsby, said the new directors and lifelong soccer fans would bring vast experience from their respective fields to the sport's governing body.
Football West is preparing for the official opening of the $32.5 million State Football Centre in Queens Park, which will host the 2023 Women's World Cup.
