Hochberg steps aside from presidency after 4 years

Posted: 22-Nov-2017 by Maccabi NSW

After four years at the helm, Danny Hochberg has relinquished the presidency of Maccabi NSW, with Lauren Ehrlich taking over the position.

Danny’s involvement in Maccabi and his numerous achievements span well over two decades. From President of the junior soccer club to the presidency of Maccabi NSW for the last four years, Danny has been instrumental in developing so many wide and varying aspects of our organisation.

From youth leadership programs to the introduction of sports administrators, he leaves behind a true legacy fuelled by his passion for Jewish sport and everything Maccabi stands for.

Hochberg’s successor, Lauren Ehrlich, takes over the top job after eight years in various other portfolio positions on the board.

Ehrlich had the following to say as she officially took over the title of president at a board meeting earlier this month:

“Danny leaves very big shoes for me to fill but I assure you that I will endeavour to do my very best for our organisation.

The future will be a challenge as we look to add value and support for our clubs and its members, strive to raise revenue and prioritize what is most needed. As a roof body we need to provide leadership and support, particularly in compliance, safety and succession planning and I encourage more women and the younger demographic to be involved and get on committees and boards.”

Everyone at Maccabi NSW wishes Danny Hochberg the very best for his future endeavours and bids him farewell with huge amounts of gratitude for all the time and effort he has put into his time as president as well as all the positive difference he has made over the past four years.

BeHatzlacha Danny!
