We are pleased to announce Peter Fitzgerald’s appointment as Sports Industry Expert and Senior Advisor to Clarity+ Group.
Peter joins the Team at Clarity following almost 40 years in the legal profession as a highly respected Criminal and Sports Lawyer.
Peter’s corporate governance expertise is based in extensive experience representing clients in complex investigations run by regulatory authorities such as ASIC and the former National Crime Authority.
Peter has had a lifelong involvement in sport beginning as an athlete in the 1970’s. He was a member of Australia’s 1976 Olympic Track & Field Team, reaching the semi-finals of the 200m. Following his retirement from competitive sport Peter has remained active and involved in sport at community, club, national and international level to this day. He currently coaches elite sprinters, with some of his athletes making Australia’s international teams, the latest being 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and the 2017 World Championships in London.
As a lawyer Peter has extensive experience as both an athlete manager and representing athletes and associations in sports law related matters. He has been a consultant to the High Performance programs of Athletics Australia and Triathlon Australia. He provided general legal advice to the Australian Commonwealth Games Association between 2008 – 2015 and was their Honorary Legal Counsel at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
We are excited with Peter’s appointment and believe that his legal and sports industry experience place him in a unique position to bolster Clarity’s vision to pursue positive workplaces and to encourage real change in how workplaces can enhance and develop a speak up culture.
