Gold Coast Suns chief executive officer Andrew Travis has announced his resignation from the club.
Travis joined the Suns in 2009 as chief operating officer and helped the club make the move to their new headquarters at Metricon Stadium.
Travis replaced former CEO Travis Auld in October 2014 when Auld left the club to take up a senior position at the AFL.
In a statement, Travis said: “The five years as COO and two and half as CEO has been tough but rewarding and I’m looking forward to taking a break before my next challenge.
“I will always be proud of the work we have done to deliver Metricon Stadium – a great asset for the club, but broader than that – a great asset for the Gold Coast and the state of Queensland.
“Moving into the new training and administration facility is a good time for the club to look forward –and I feel that I am leaving the club in a good position with a great platform for the next phase of growth.”
Suns Chairman, Tony Cochrane, added: “When Andrew took over as CEO, the club was facing considerable off field issues, and many challenges on the footy field. He should be very proud of the changes to the culture of our club that he has overseen.
“But the biggest, and the best transition Andrew has led us through has been the move to the new home of the Gold Coast Suns, perhaps the best training and administration facility in the competition.
“The two key pieces of infrastructure, being the stadium and the Training and Administration facility are the platform upon which this club can build its future, and Andrew’s fingerprints will always be part of those.”
