As a result of an independent review of the Board and the 2019 budget process, it has been agreed that a revised board structure and operating model needs to be developed to ensure the financial sustainability of the Club.
Although there have been significant improvements to the Club’s financial performance over the past three years, with increased sponsorship, membership, attendance and other match day revenues, more still needs to be done for the Club to regain independence.
In these circumstances it has been agreed that the role of CEO will be reviewed and that David’s current contract will not be extended.
David has very much enjoyed the experience of being back in the SANFL environment and would like to thank the Board for the opportunity to work at one of the foundation clubs of the competition. He would like to acknowledge the staff and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to ensure the teams that represent the Club have the resources they require to be the best they can be.
David looks forward to watching the Club ascent back up the ladder, having recruited strongly in preparation for the 2019 season.
