CEO Resignation

The Board of the West Adelaide Football Club has reluctantly accepted the resignation of Ben Hopkins as its Chief Executive Officer.

Ben has been CEO for the last three years and has overseen significant changes in both the Football and Licensed Clubs. Ben has acted tirelessly in the interests of the West Adelaide Football Club during his tenure. He has been actively involved in football for 15 years and now wishes to pursue a change in career direction and a new challenge. The Board wishes Ben every success in the future and his contribution to the Club is very much appreciated.

Ben will leave his post on 15 September 2021. The Board will look to the market and seek a successor to fill the role.

Murray Forbes
President

In his announcement to the players on Monday night, he's got another job in a different field away from football.

So Ben has left.

After Doug being in charge for decades, we've now had 6 CEOs in the last 14 years.

I'd suggest 4 of them were either poor or disastrous.

Let's hope we make a good appointment.

Lethal, when new CEO is appointed then it will be interesting to look at his skills set as that will be a clear indication of where the Board sees deficiencies in the club.

Your comment "we've now had 6 CEOs in the last 14 years." is rather alarming to say the least --- whilst understanding/knowing the reasons for some of those changes it does reek of instability.

Aldo's throw away comment makes sense to me in that IMO we need a CEO with experience in running a football club preferable SANFL experience

Politics aside, IMO we need someone with a strong sports administration background, preferably with financial , human resource management and have some exposure to management of club facilities. Whether an x politician, who follows a specific team qualifies I’ll leave up to the selection panel.
On that matter, The selection panel composition will be interesting.

I am not suggesting Rob as CEO rather identifying as potential future President if he wanted to nominate.
