The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys are pleased to announce the return of respected sports administrator John Lee to their board of directors.
Mr Lee served as a director on the Cowboys board from 2014-2015, before moving into key leadership roles with NRL clubs South Sydney Rabbitohs and Sydney Roosters, and his current position as CEO of Australian Sailing.
Club chairman Laurence Lancini welcomed Mr Lee on behalf of the Cowboys.
"John is a dynamic operator who brings a wealth of experience and connections to our great club, and we're delighted to have him rejoin our board," Mr Lancini said.
"These are exciting times for the Cowboys as we approach our final season at 1300SMILES Stadium and begin our transition to the new North Queensland Stadium, and we look forward to John's contribution to this important chapter in our history and beyond."
Mr Lee also expressed his enthusiasm to be returning to work with North Queensland's premier sporting organisation.
"I am honoured to be rejoining the board of the North Queensland Cowboys," Mr Lee said.
"The Cowboys are a great community-based club with a first-rate playing roster, professional coaches led by Paul Green and a committed staff.
"I look forward to making a positive contribution as the North Queensland Stadium becomes a reality and the team gets its new home.
"There's no doubt the Cowboys have grown considerably on and off the field in recent years, including the unforgettable 2015 Premiership and never-say-die 2017 Grand Final berth.
"I'm thrilled to be part of this journey and to be working again with the club's highly experienced board and executive."
