With the XXXV Olympiad a decade away, the Brisbane 2032 Organising Committee has hired its first two employees.

Rebecca Masci has been appointed executive director, strategic engagement, brand and marketing, and Brendan Keane has been appointed executive director, governance and international relations.

Andrew Liveris, president of Brisbane 2032, said both employees will be taking on different responsibilities.

“Brendan will take the lead on key governance and Games Family relationships, drawing on knowledge from the critical role he played in delivering the winning Brisbane 2032 bid.

“Rebecca’s background puts her in the prime position to lead on reputation management, commercial brand development and strategic engagement, using her first-hand knowledge of the Organising Committee environment, derived from her time in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games,” Liveris said in a statement.

The president continued the focus of the committee at the moment is the recruitment of a CEO, which was also named a priority during the inaugural board meeting in April.

Although the games are 10 years away, plans have already been announced as Brisbane prepares itself for the infrastructure necessary to host the international event. 

Northshore Hamilton was picked for the athletes’ village in Brisbane, which will accommodate 10,000 Olympians and 5,000 Paralympians. 

It will be the third Olympic Games to be hosted in Australia, following Sydney’s games in 2000 and Melbourne’s games in 1956.
