  • Latest Podcast: Josh Mahoney Interview



Stretch Johnson

New CEO - Gary Pert

Recommended Posts

Reading the Collingwood BF page they seem to indicate some reasons he wasn't well liked at the Pies at the end were he leaks to media, was the source for Robbos Collingwood players on drugs story and tried to micromanage the FD.

Just read that too. I'm normally glass half full on anything MFC but very concerned about this.

I was told by a passionate Collingwood supporter who both he and wife had independent professional dealings with Pert that Pert was toxic at Collingwood. When I was told this Collingwood had just done it's review and Pert left. he even said to bet on Collingwood to make finals after he left because rifts would be healed.

 

Gary pert was moved on for one reason & one reason only ( think Simon Lethlean) ...you can state whatever “passionate” Collingwood supporter etc or whatever else you have heard but this is 100% fact.   The filth will be “filthy” because love them or hate them...(i’m In the latter).....he is an amazing operator...well done Dee’s !!!

I don't want to hang him or applaud him before he done something all I know is he has big shoes to fill.

Jackson has been great for this club, don't let us down Perty..

Who would you trust to build a training base at Gosch's?

Josh Mahoney - jointly in charge (with list management committee) of allocating a salary cap amongst the 44 players and doing some trade deals, as well as resourcing the coaches and players

Or:

Gary Pert - overseen a club that turns over maybe 77 mil in revenue and has built the Holden Centre with all the same stakeholders to deal with.

If we are smart and rate Mahoney so highly then the succession will actually be from Pert to Mahoney after Pert has built us a training base.

I think that it is a misrepresentation of the reality, but the man himself said he will not be involved in the decision.

And why would he be, he is is leaving. 

Board decision, you’d think they’d take some advice from PJ but it’s the Boards call.

That'd be consultation then...

If Mahoney wants to be a CEO surely he should be willing to spend some time in the business side of the club rather than just the footy side which he currently operates. I know he has been to uni and has various degrees, but at the end of the day they are just bits of paper. Nothing prepares you to do the job other than being involved in doing the job. He's got no experience in business as far as I am aware other than being in the footy department. I'm all for promoting from within but appointing Mahoney ahead of a candidate like Pert would be close to stupidity in my opinion.

What I do know was that he resigned around the time they appointed Peter Murphy to do an external review of the club.

That indicates to me that the results concerning him coming from that review may not have been particularly flattering. I don't know particulars but that alone is worrying.

I think Murphy is a guy who was making waves about the lack of independence  of the CFC board (all Eddie appointees) and Eddie hushed him up by having him do the review. Easy to see that that could have rubbed Pert the wrong way.

Cons:
- The Balme/Gubby Allen/Buckley etc fiasco.

That was all Eddie.

Tom Browne's tweet raises an interesting point.

I got the feeling that we would be promoting internally. Maybe I was mistaken. 

I hope Perty isn't in the change for change's sake camp. While I'm sure he has his own ideas and is entitled to them, we don't need major change off field. That part of the club has been purring like a well oiled machine.

Currently the club is in a stable position, however the club has just made a big decision to give up a cash cow (pokies). Over the next couple of years the club is going to have to raise revenue significantly. The club might be purring like a well oiled machine now but it's going to take a good operator to replace the revenue we have chosen to relinquish. 

From what I can tell Pert has a good network in the media through TV and radio. I'm hopeful that he'd be able to leverage off that to raise the clubs profile and in the process drive revenue higher. Hopefully he can help negotiate a better fixture for more exposure through free to air games and then raise more through sponsors and the onflowing effects.

"My sister is friends with Margie Amarfio who was at the club for a decade. She says Pert was good to work with. Didn't seem to me like there was a split in the admin or bad blood etc in there. Just time for a change, as banal as that."

Collingwood needed someone to blame last year when the [censored] hit the fan and unfortunately, Perty was the man to cop the bullet.  

So he was at Collingwood for 11 years as CEO and he was deemed a liability when the team was underperforming. Please, he'll be fine has bucket loads of experience in PJ we trust.

From memory PJ’s time at Essendon didn’t end well either and that turned out ok for us.

I'm happy with this call.  He has experience with a genuine powerhouse in Collingwood.  With luck he'll have a good idea of hw to help Melbourne expand.
