3. PETER BEATTIE ARL com­mis­sioner

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

Twelve months ago the for­mer Queens­land Premier would not have been in the top 500 in­flu­ences, but this time next year Beattie could be No. 1 on the list. He joined the ARL Com­mis­sion in July and is widely tipped to re­place John Grant as chair­man in Fe­bru­ary. He has a rich his­tory in league, hav­ing played as a ju­nior, and had a key role in the devel­op­ment of Sun­corp and Gold Coast Cbus sta­di­ums. He will split his role in the ini­tial months as chair­man of the Gold Coast Com­mon­wealth Games.
