Greg Perreaux named Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Games Council

Regina, SK (January 24, 2024) -- The Saskatchewan Games Council Board of Directors is thrilled to announce the selection of Greg Perreaux as the organization's incoming Executive Director, following an executive search launched in October 2023. Perreaux will assume his new role with the provincial multi-sport organization on April 1, 2024.

Perreaux brings with him over 25 years of sport administration experience in the non-profit sector, with 18 of those years leading sport organizations as Executive Director. Prior to joining the Saskatchewan Games Council (SGC) in 2019 as Provincial Games Consultant, Perreaux worked for Sask Sport Inc. in various capacities, including as the Executive Director of the Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS). Additionally, he served on the Board of Directors of the Coaching Association of Canada during his tenure with CAS.

"Greg brings many years of experience in sport management, both provincially and nationally. In addition, he brings a wealth of knowledge about the sport system in our province and in our country,” said SGC Board Chair Leslie Blyth. “His passion for sport and all who champion sport will be of great benefit as he takes on the leadership role of Executive Director. We are confident in his ability to lead us forward as we build towards the 2024 Saskatchewan Summer Games and 2025 Canada Summer Games."

She added, “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I'd like to thank Mark Bracken for his service to our organization. His efforts have served to strengthen the Saskatchewan Games Council in so many ways. We wish him well in his retirement and all of his future endeavours.”

Perreaux’s passion for multi-sport games began nearly two decades ago, when he volunteered on the host organizing committee for the 2005 Canada Summer Games in Regina. Then the Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Broomball Association, his experience at the Canada Games sparked over 15 years of mission staff involvement with Team Sask at the Canada Games and Western Canada Summer Games, including four appointments as Assistant Chef de Mission. Perreaux will serve as Team Sask Chef de Mission at the upcoming 2025 Canada Summer Games in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

“I am grateful and excited for this opportunity with the Saskatchewan Games Council, and I look forward to continuing to implement new ways to enhance our Games program while maintaining its historical legacy,” said Perreaux. "I am committed to ensuring that the Saskatchewan Games and Team Sask programs continue to provide exceptional experiences that are safe, fun, accessible, and responsive to the evolving sport landscape. I look forward to working and collaborating with all of our partners and stakeholders in this new capacity in April.”

Outside of his work in sport, Perreaux enjoys giving back to the community through coaching -- currently softball and ringette -- and through volunteering at various community, sport, and music events.

Perreaux will replace outgoing Executive Director Mark Bracken, who will retire in March after ten years leading the organization. The SGC will release a job posting for the Provincial Games Consultant role in the coming weeks, with more details forthcoming.
