Chairman of the Board of Wests Group Macarthur, Mr Warren Thomson, has stepped down from the role of Chairman, having served in that capacity since 2016. Mr Thomson will continue to serve on the Board as a Director whilst Club Director and Deputy Chair, Mr Alan Buxton will take over the position of Chairman. Campbelltown City Councillor and former Mayor Mr Paul Lake will assume the position of Deputy Chair.

“I am extremely proud to have served the Club as Chairman for the last few years, and I am happy to continue serving on the Board,” stated Mr Thomson at the Club’s Annual General Meeting last Sunday. “Alan was a great support to me in his role as Deputy Chair and I have every confidence that he will excel in the position of Chairman.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank my fellow Board Members, Wests Group Macarthur CEO Tony Mathew and the Wests Group Macarthur management team for their hard work and dedication during my time as Chairman.”

Mr Thomson, Mr Buxton and Mr Lake have all been serving on the Board of Wests Group Macarthur since 2003. During that time, the club has grown from a single venue with a modest membership and staff-base, to currently consisting of four venues, 350 staff and a membership of over 72,000.

“I am grateful to Warren and all of the Board for the leadership and support they have provided over the years,” stated Wests Group Macarthur CEO Tony Mathew. “I wish Alan and Paul the best of luck in their new positions and look forward to working with them in the coming year.”

The changes within the Board come at a time when the Club is enjoying huge momentum. The Country Club at Gledswood Hills is currently undergoing renovations and will soon open a new outdoor dining area, a dedicated children’s play area and new parking facilities.

Wests Campbelltown has also just opened its new eatery, ‘The Hub’. “The Hub is an eclectic group of dining options, all operating out of the one shared location,” explains Food and Beverage Manager Simon McNamara. “We have Deli Style sandwiches by day, Italian dishes at night, Asian Fusion all day and a Sushi and Tempura outlet opening soon.”

Wests Group Macarthur have also recently finished improvements to the course at Lakeside Golf Club Camden, with 8 new greens now playable and are set to begin the development of a new Club, also to be located in the Gledswood Hills area. The new venue will be called ‘The Greens’ and will consist of a Greg Norman designed nine-hole course, with the latest technology to add to a driving range experience.

“The changes within the Board will not affect our growth strategy, we all share the same vision for the club and will continue to work together towards achieving our goals,” stated Wests Group Macarthur’s newly appointed Chairman Allan Buxton, “I look forward taking on this new challenge and to working closely with Tony and the rest of our team.”
