Bulls CEO quits
NEWS: The Blue Bulls Company announced that its Chief Executive Officer Alfons Meyer will be leaving the company at the end of May 2020.
It has been a short tenure for Meyer who officially started in the position at the beginning of 2019 after being appointed in late 2018.
“We would like to thank Alfons for his great contribution to the company,” said Blue Bulls Board Chairman Pieter Uys.
“Over the past year, he has been instrumental in the restructure of the Blue Bulls Company, and has laid a strong foundation on which the company can build and become the world-class team again that it once was.
“We respect Alfons’ decision to step down and wish him well in his future endeavours.”
Meanwhile, Meyer added: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Bulls, it has been the highlight of my professional career. 2019 was an exceptional year to be part of the Bulls Super Rugby campaign and to play a major role in the equity transaction which saw Mr. Patrice Motsepe become part of the Bulls family as an investor was a privilege.
“I wish the staff and players all the best, especially during these extraordinary times – I will remain a loyal supporter forever!”
It is the second big departure for the Bulls this year. Alan Zondagh stepped down from his position as the union’s director of rugby with Jake White taking over his role.
