Resignation of Bruce Atterton-Evans as Chairperson of Brisbane Strikers FC
The Brisbane Strikers FC wants to sincerely thank Bruce Atterton-Evans for his hard work and dedication over the past 13 years, as we announce his resignation as Chairperson of the Football Club.
Bruce has been at the helm during the one of the most challenging times ever in the Club’s history, navigating the organisation through the pandemic, which continues to have an impact on community sports around the world.
He is honoured to have chaired one of Queensland’s most iconic and successful premier football clubs for over half of its lifetime, and is proud to be leaving at a time when the Club is recognised as the leading Junior Academy in Queensland and has a solid foundation as he steps away to spend more time with his family as a doting grandparent.
“I am looking forward to celebrating the Brisbane Strikers’ 25th Anniversary of their triumph in the 1997 NSL Grand Final next year, and to seeing the Club continue to develop a bright and strong future under the new leadership,” Mr Atterton-Evans said.
The Brisbane Strikers Board has voted Julianna Suranyi as the new Chairperson. A business strategist, forensically-trained profiler and behavioural expert, Ms Suranyi has consulted to a vast range of businesses including Brisbane City Council, Wanless Wastecorp, EDS Credit Services, Field Orthopaedics, Velocity Property Group, Adapt Housing and more.
Her expertise has already assisted the Club through the consolidation of existing sponsorships and the introduction of new sponsors as the Club continues to grow, and Ms Suranyi is looking forward to developing the Brisbane Strikers commercially and culturally, with a focus on the Club’s business and sponsorship opportunities.
“On behalf of the Brisbane Strikers Football Club, I want to thank Bruce for his incredible work and leadership for the past 13 years and wish him well as he relaxes with his family,” said Ms Suranyi.
