The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have extended the contract of Chief Executive Raelene Castle for a further two years, until the end of 2018.

Castle joined the Bulldogs in July 2013 and under her leadership the Club has enjoyed record levels of membership and sponsorship, ensured the Bulldogs have had the best attendances of any NRL team in Sydney, opened the most innovative sporting retail experience in Australia and implemented the most comprehensive community programme in the Club’s history. 

Chairman Ray Dib says securing her ongoing involvement is an important development for the Bulldogs.   

“Raelene has overseen growth right across the business and the Bulldogs are continuing to thrive on and off the field under her leadership,” Dib said. “Importantly her ability to develop relationships in new markets is broadening awareness of who the Bulldogs are and what we stand for.

“Raelene brings stability to our Club as we work towards delivering our key strategic objectives.”
