Sydney FC sacks CEO Melton March 6, 2012, 12:08 am

Official release from Sydney FC

The Board of Sydney Football Club Pty Limited has today announced that Sydney FC has terminated, effective immediately, the employment of Dirk Melton, its Chief Executive Officer.

The unanimous decision of the Board follows a number of formal complaints of a serious nature by employees which were investigated and revealed behaviour in Mr Melton's management of staff which was completely unacceptable.

The Board acknowledges that, during his period as Chief Executive Officer, Mr Melton brought enthusiasm and passion to the role and had set on a path to achieve the strategic long term goals of the Club.

However, the Board determined that Mr Melton's behaviour towards staff was inconsistent with his obligations and could not be tolerated by the Board, and as a consequence the Club could not continue with him as Chief Executive Officer.

Stefan Kamasz will undertake the role of Acting Chief Executive Officer, until the Board makes a decision as to Mr Melton's replacement.
