President of the Year
Leon Ross announced 'President of the Year' by Community Clubs Victoria.
Village resident, Leon Ross has been a very active member of the Mulgrave Country Club for 20 years. His tireless involvement has included: member of the Board (13 years), member of the Finance and Strategic Management Committee, Director, Secretary, Vice President and President since 2007. He also manages to find time to enjoy golf and bowls at his beloved Club!
Leon is professional and knowledgeable, due in no small part to his experience as Financial Controller at Bayer Australia Ltd. His business acumen has proven invaluable overseeing the Club's building development programmes, negotiations with banks and the Club's philanthropic endeavours. Leon was the driving force behind the Scholarship Scheme which allocates $2,000 to each of 12 Secondary Colleges in our area. Leon is comfortable in the company of councillors, State Ministers and Members of Parliament, yet he always has time for fellow members and their concerns.
Congratulations to Leon on this well-deserved award!
