Todd Greenberg, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Rugby League (NRL) is Fairfield City’s Australia Day Ambassador for 2017.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said it was magnificent to have an ambassador of such high standard for Fairfield City.

“It is our pleasure to have Mr Greenberg as our ambassador and visit our great City to help us celebrate our Australia Day awards and see residents take out Australian citizenship,” he said.

The NRL runs the Telstra Premiership, comprising 16 teams from Australia and New Zealand, and is also responsible for the women and men’s Australian representative teams. The NRL runs the State of Origin series between New South Wales and Queensland which is the most watched show on Australian television.

As CEO, Todd oversees all areas of the business including commercial and football operations, legal, finance, media and communications, and integrity and strategy.

Prior to joining the NRL, Todd spent six years as the CEO of the Bulldogs Rugby League Club making him, at the time, the youngest CEO in the NRL.

Todd says leadership, team building, community engagement, cultural and brand transformation were the trademarks of his tenure at the Bulldogs. Todd is a strong advocate for elite athletes using their profile and reach within the broader community to enable positive change.

In 2009, Todd won the prestigious NSW Sports Administrator of the Year Award and in 2011, was voted as one of ‘Sydney’s top 100 most influential people’ in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Todd has been an Australia Day Ambassador since 2010, helping to promote Australia Day at community events throughout NSW.
