Melbourne United is excited to announce Craig Hutchison has been appointed Chairman of the Club’s board, after being voted in by the shareholder group at a recent board meeting.
As a well-established media personality and entrepreneur, Hutchison is currently CEO of Crocmedia, the media group that acquired a 25 percent stake in Melbourne United after the ownership of the Club was diversified in 2018.
Hutchison said he was honoured to take on the role.
“Melbourne United is a powerhouse franchise and I am eager to play a part in building its legacy,” he said.
“There is a buzz around this city when Melbourne United is thriving. Having reached the NBL finals in 2018/19 and just missing out on the championship, we are dedicated as a collective to go one further next year. Fans should be on the edge of their seats as we prepare for another bumper season of show-stopping basketball,” Hutchison said.
Melbourne United CEO, Vince Crivelli welcomed the announcement of Hutchison’s appointment to the role.
“I think it’s wonderful that Craig has stepped up to the role of Chairman,” Crivelli said.
“It’s another step in the right direction in the evolution of our club. I look forward to working with him and the board on the ongoing strategy and growth of our Club.”
Melbourne United is committed to delivering opportunities for sustained success both on and off the court whilst providing the highest level of engagement and entertainment.
