Fijian Drua advertise CEO position

The Fijian Drua has advertised the position of its chief executive.

The search for the new CEO will be conducted by independent Executive Search firm Odgers Berndston.

The newest franchise in Super Rugby Pacific is looking for a CEO to lead the Club to newer heights and position it as one of the most exciting clubs in the competition.

This aligns with the strategic direction of the Fijian Drua following its inaugural Super Rugby Pacific season.

As was always planned, it also allows current CEO Brian Thorburn, who was acting in an interim capacity, to return to his substantial role as Commercial Director of Fiji Rugby and focus on several upcoming domestic and international engagements.

This includes Flying Fijians tests, the Fijiana’s first ever Rugby World Cup appearance, and Fiji’s campaigns for the Commonwealth Games 7s and Rugby World Cup 7s.

Thorburn will continue to lead the Fijian Drua until a new CEO is appointed, with the extensive process expected to take several months.

The key requirements for the role include having a proven track record as CEO leading a start-up or early-stage organisation, strong commercial acumen and demonstrated experience in finance, governance and revenue generation.

The successful candidate must be able to carefully develop constructive relationships with key stakeholders in Fiji and abroad, have true passion with an innate understanding for high performance sport and rugby, as well as an in-depth understanding of the Fijian and Pacific Islands culture.

The role has been advertised both locally and internationally.
