Andrew Dillon’s wife, Amanda Dillon, comes from a sporty family, with her father being a form cricketer. Andrew shares three daughters with Amanda.
A man with a background in law, Andrew Dillon, has become the new CEO of the Australian Football League. His connection with the AFL goes back to 2000, when he joined them as a legal counsel.
Since then, up to now, Dillon has won the trust of those close to him. He was the hand-pick choice of the outgoing CEO Gillon McLachlan, bringing an end to a 12-month search for a CEO.
It is to be seen whether Dillon can successfully replace McLachlan and create the same atmosphere with players, including the likes of Nick Daicos and Darcy Moore.
