Just heard over the radio Jim Doyle will step down from the position of CEO of the NZRL at the end of the year.
Will he be the new CEO of the NRL next year?

He announced that he was stepping down on 21st August this year.

I thought he was brought in to implement the proposals put forward by Sir John Anderson in his damning report on the state of New Zealand Rugby League in 2009. It was after implementing alot of the proposals that NZRL was given $3 million of funding by SPARC which basically saved grassroots league.

By all accounts he did a great job and wish to thank him for his contribution to NZRL.

haha, somebody has finally taken an interest in this thread. Yes he has done a great job at the NZRL and is to be commended.

The ARLC have shown interest in him as a candidate for the position of NRL CEO (but then that's like trying to pick the next warriors coach)

Former representative hockey player Phil Holden will take over as chief executive of the NZRL, replacing the outgoing Jim Doyle who is stepping down after three years in the job.

Holden played representative hockey for Southland, Otago, Wellington and Hawkes Bay and is also former chairman of the Auckland Diamonds netball franchise. He has established relationships in Wellington, notably Sport New Zealand, through his current role as Lion Foundation chief executive
No league background but sports admin experience

The new NRL CEO has been said to be outside of the sports industry.

It might not mention it.
Mate if he has been involved with Lion...he has been involved with rugby league

I know he came from the Foundation...but they fund local amateur competitions and support local sport
So he would of probably given nzrl money before.

If he was involved with Lion nathan ....then there was the Lion Red Cup and Lion red kiwis.

Mad mad respect to Jim Doyle. Stoked to see him go further in his career and if he does half of what he did here at the NZRL then the NRL is in for great revival. Only bad bit is he wont be the Warriors new CEO...
