Club Statement – Appointment of New Chief Executive Officer


On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am delighted to announce Paul Lekias as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Peel Thunder Football Club.


The Board believes Paul has all the attributes to be a successful Chief Executive Officer at Peel Thunder. His knowledge and relationships within the WAFL, and AFL communities, will assist Paul to lead the club in a strong and professional manner and serve our Members, Sponsors, District, and other key stakeholders to the standards that have been set in recent years.


In recent times, Paul has worked within the WA Football Commission as Facility Services Manager at Subiaco Oval before being promoted to General Manager in 2016. During this time Paul oversaw the last events held at Subiaco Oval including AFL matches, WAFL Grand Finals (in which Peel won on two occasions in 2016 & 2017), Monster Trucks and numerous concerts.


After managing the decommissioning of Subiaco Oval, Paul has since overseen the commencement of Community Recycling WA based in Mandurah, as part of the Containers for Change Program.


Please join me in welcoming Paul, his wife Rachel, and children Kalara, Braydi, Jye & Austin to the Peel Thunder Football Club.


Kind regards,

Bob Ryan
