MELBOURNE Football Club has today appointed Sally Freeman to the club’s Board of Directors. 

Freeman, a chartered accountant by trade, brings strong skills in Risk Management, Audit, Finance, Governance and Ethics to the club, having previously been a partner at both Ernst & Young and KPMG, where she headed up KPMG’s Risk Consulting practice.

President Kate Roffey said she was thrilled to have Freeman join the Demons. 

“We are absolutely delighted that Sally has agreed to join the Board of the Melbourne Football Club,” Roffey said.

“Sally brings a broad range of experience to the Board and will play an important role on the club’s Audit, Risk & Integrity Sub-Committee.

“Sally’s experience in a vast range of sectors will be greatly beneficial and we look forward to the role she can play in ensuring Melbourne continues to thrive both on and off the field.”

Freeman is an experienced Non-Executive Director, who currently sits on the Board of Netwealth and Eastern Health. She is also an Audit Committee Member of both HealthShare Victoria and Commonwealth Games Australia.

Freeman fills the vacancy left by outgoing former-president, Glen Bartlett, who departed the Board earlier this month after eight years of service to the red and blue.
