Central Coast Mariners announce Interim CEO

The Central Coast Mariners are excited to announce the appointment of Adam Thomson as the club’s Interim CEO.

Thomson, who has impressively served as Chief Commercial Officer for the past nine months, steps into this new role with experience in the high performance sporting environment and a profound commitment to the club’s success, both on and off the field.

Having played an instrumental role in the Mariners’ recent commercial achievements, Thomson brings a wealth of professionalism and commercial expertise to his new position. His dedication to driving growth and innovation within the organisation has already delivered exceptional results for the club, and his transition to Interim CEO positions the club to enhance this performance even further.

“I am excited to take on the role of Interim CEO at such a pivotal moment for the Central Coast Mariners. As we strive to level up our performance in all areas of the business, I am committed to ensuring that we continue on our trajectory of success. Change presents opportunities for growth, and I am eager to harness this momentum to drive the club forward,” Thomson said.

Thomson’s appointment comes at a time when the Mariners are poised for further growth. With a focus on commercial development, community involvement and club sustainability, he aims to lead the organisation with fresh eyes, capitalising on new opportunities and building upon the foundation laid.

In support of Thomson’s appointment, Chairman Richard Peil remarked, “Adam’s ability to lead a team and deliver results over his first nine months at the Club, plus his track record from Adelaide United, made him the automatic choice after Shaun’s departure. I’m looking forward to working with Adam in his new role and am excited to see the results he will inevitably deliver.”

As Interim CEO, Thomson will work closely with the club’s management team to implement strategic initiatives aimed at enhancing fan engagement, strengthening community partnerships, and securing the Mariners’ position as a leading force in Australian football.
