THE Carlton Football Club can confirm that its members have elected the three incumbent candidates to retain their positions on the Board of the football club. 

Eligible members could vote for up to three candidates and ultimately elected to retain current directors Chris Judd, Chris Townshend and David Campbell in their current positions on the Board. 

The results of the election were communicated to members at the Club’s Annual General Meeting on Monday night.

Judd will continue into his third year as Football Director, having first joined the Board in October, 2017 following his 14-year playing career which included 145 games in the Navy Blue. 

Campbell, a partner of leadership advisory firm Egon Zehnder International, has worked alongside Blues CEO Cain Liddle to bring industry-leading professionals to the Carlton Football Club while also establishing the Club’s first People and Culture sub-committee. 

The role of Director Chris Townshend, a QC with over 26 years of experience, will be invaluable as the Club enters the next section of the planning phase of its Master Plan. Townshend will see this process through to completion due to his vast experience in Planning and Environmental Law.

Carlton President Mark LoGiudice expressed gratitude to all candidates and every Carlton member who took part in the election process.

“The Carlton Football Club would like to thank all five candidates for their time, effort and commitment through the election process,” LoGiudice said.

“Chris Judd, David Campbell and Chris Townshend will continue to add valuable insight and expertise to what is a strong, skills-based Board that is focused solely on the best interests of the Carlton Football Club.

“We would like to thank every Carlton member who voted, as well as every Carlton member who took an interest in this election process. This process is crucial to the governance of our football club to make sure we, as Board members, continue to be held accountable to our members – who are ultimately the custodians of our football club.”
