Sydney Roosters chief executive John Lee will be leaving the club at the end of March where he lasted just 13 months in the role after making the switch from South Sydney.

Lee was the club’s first chief executive since 2012, taking over from chief operating officer Brian Canavan. He had spent 14 months at South Sydney before making a sudden move to join the Roosters.

It was reported by Fairfax that Roosters chairman Nick Politis has opted for a “changing of the guard.”

The club issued a statement on Wednesday afternoon confirming the news.

“The Sydney Roosters today announced that CEO John Lee will depart the club at the end of the month,” the statement said.

“Mr Lee was the club’s first CEO since 2012, and in his second year in the role at the club. Mr Lee said he was disappointed to be parting ways with the club at such a positive time.

“The Roosters board of directors appreciates the energy and skill set Mr Lee brought to the club, and thank him for his service, wishing him every success in the future. The Roosters will commence a recruitment process in the coming weeks.”
