Basketball Australia Appoints Interim CEO, Carolyn Campbell

asketball Australia (BA) has announced the appointment of former Netball NSW CEO, Carolyn Campbell, as interim CEO effective immediately.

The appointment comes after former BA CEO, Jerril Rechter, announced her resignation from the organisation last week.

Campbell joins BA after spending the past 15 years as the CEO of Netball NSW, and having spent the past 25 years in senior executive roles across Australian sport.

Basketball Australia chair, Ned Coten, said Campbell will assume all CEO duties and responsibilities while the BA board conducts a search to fill the role permanently.

“The board is delighted to have been able to secure the esteemed services of Carolyn Campbell as Basketball Australia’s interim CEO,” Coten said.

“Ms Campbell is a highly regarded, vastly experienced sports administrator who understands the inner working of national sporting organisations and will be able to hit the ground running during what is a busy, yet exciting year for Australian basketball,” he said.

Basketball Australia did not confirm whether Campbell would be a candidate for the permanent CEO role as part of the search.
