The man behind Adelaide’s iconic Vili’s pies, Vilmos Milisits has died, aged 72. Mr Milisits, affectionately known as Vili, died in Sydney last night. A lung transplant Mr Milisits received was successful, but he went on to die from an unrelated health condition. The Milisits family moved to Australia as refugees in 1956, escaping political unrest in Hungary. Vili left school aged 14 to work at a cake shop in Burnside, before starting his own venture on Manchester Street in Mile End, where the original Cafe de Vilis is now. The company now exports pies and other baked goods to countries around the world.

When NRL chief operating officer Nick Weeks was made redundant in September – a victim of Peter V’landys′ $80 million cost-cutting drive – his departure from Rugby League Central was resonantly mourned by veteran commentator Roy Masters. Weeks, who built and ran the sporting code’s integrity function, remained a consultant to incoming NRL chief Andrew Abdo “if only to draw a map where all the bodies are buried”. Masters predicted Weeks would “likely return to the corporate world where his skills would be in demand for any company needing to manage reputational risk”. It was a divine prediction. And what company could need those skills more acutely than Crown Resorts?! Weeks, a former Allens lawyer, has joined the under-siege gaming group as its head of “regulatory response and transition”. One would assume that would include responding to Patricia Bergin’s report for the NSW government’s Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority, then responding to two live royal commissions in Victoria and Western Australia.
