    Catalans chief Manly bound
    June 22, 2006

    CATALANS Dragons chief executive Grant Mayer has signed off at the English Super League club to join Manly in the same role.

    The club announced the appointment, effective from August 7, late today.

    Mayer was instrumental in recently luring Canberra's Queensland Origin hero Adam Mogg and Brisbane's ex-Maroons utility Casey McGuire to the Dragons on three-year deals from 2007. He also oversaw the entry of the French club into the Super League this year.

    "I leave the Catalans Dragons knowing that we are in a stronger position now than when I started," Mayer was quoted as saying on the Super League website.

    "There is still much work to do but I'm confident the club will continue to develop over the next three years."

    Catalans president Bernard Guasch said Mayer left the club "on very good terms".

    "While we are sad to see him go, we understand his decision to return to Australia," Guasch said.

    "He will now be a terrific contact for us in the NRL."

    It is not too impressive if he lists on his CV mogg and Maguire as his best signings.

    he has a fair task ahead of him.

    If he can hold a broom and sweeo effectively he may just make some breakthroughs. Otherwise he is just going to be a figurehead

    Lets hope he's not a lead horse, and is a natural leader. It's a worry that he switches from club to club. Passion? A new CEO should definitely bring in a media management contingent if they are meant to be succesful right?

    I hope he brings a very proactive brand ideal to the club.
