Greg Swann (born 1962) is the Chief Executive Officer of the Brisbane Lions, an Australian rules football club based in Brisbane competing in the Australian Football League. He has been in the role since July 2014.[1]

Swann was previously the CEO of Carlton Football Club. On 23 March 2007, former CEO Michael Malouf stood down and it was announced that Swann would be Malouf's immediate replacement.[2] Swann served as CEO until 22 June 2014, electing to step down at the same time as club president Stephen Kernahan handed over his position to Mark LoGiudice.[3]

Swann was also previously Chief Executive Officer of Carlton's fierce rival, the Collingwood Football Club. From 1995 until 1998, he was the president of VFA/VFL club Williamstown,[4] presiding over the club when the VSFL attempted to force the club into a merger with Werribee at the end of 1995; he had previously played about 100 games for Williamstown during the 1980s.[5]

He attended Wesley College (Melbourne, Australia).
