In the absence of the Commodore and Vice Commodore, I regret to advise that after 12 years, our General Manager, Suzanne Davies has resigned from her role to take up an opportunity to progress her career in the corporate sector. Further information regarding her new role will be shared with members when her new employer has announced her appointment.
Suzanne joined our Club in 2006 and was appointed to General Manager in 2007. During her tenure Suzanne has achieved some great outcomes and milestones all of which she can be very proud of. She has worked alongside and supported five Commodores and dozens of Directors and Elected Officers, she has effectively juggled the competing needs of members and built a dedicated and service focused staff team.
Suzanne’s last day of work will be Friday 24 August. In the meantime, the Board will consider the most appropriate way forward and will then conduct a thorough and rigorous recruitment process that will ensure that the Club attracts another progressive and dynamic leader to work with Elected Officers and continue to take the Club forward.
While we are disappointed by her departure, I along with all Elected Officers congratulate Suzanne on her new and exciting opportunity and wish her every success. We will make a time for a suitable send off and will advise in the coming weeks.
THE ROYAL PRINCE ALFRED YACHT CLUB
Chairman of the Board
