It is with great pleasure that the Australian Clay Target Association (ACTA) Management Sub-Committee can now announce the official appointment of Mr. Paul Gilbert to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the ACTA. This appointment was finalised following the signing of an employment contract today.    

Mr. Gilbert was one of the shortlisted applicants interviewed previously when the position was advertised last September.    

Mr. Gilbert has 25 years of sport administration experience in various roles as either General Manager or Chief Executive Officer.  This included 9 years as the CEO of the Australian National University Sports and Recreation Association, managing a large membership and numerous facilities. He is also a former Australian champion and International representative in mid-distance running.

The ACTA welcomes Paul to the position which will take effect on the 5th August and looks forward to a bright future for the Association with his input and guidance.

Congratulations to the Open Australian Team members who placed second in the 5th ICTSF World English Sporting Championships in Ireland. Team members were Chris Brown, Blake Nankervis, Nicholas Guerra, Robert Hall and Mathew Wilesmith. Mathew was the youngest on the team and also took out second place in the juniors, well done.

Australia’s clay target shooters now officially have a headquarters the envy of their peers around the world. The new function centre – The Range – was officially opened at the Australian Clay Target Association’s National Grounds by Wes Fang, MLC in October 2018, and the website is now live at:
