Bulls CEO steps down

The Blue Bulls Company has announced that its Chief Executive Officer Alfons Meyer will be leaving the franchise at the end of May 2020.

Earlier this year, Alan Zondagh stepped down from his position as the union’s director of rugby, with Jake White more recently appointed to this position.

On Friday it was now confirmed that Meyer would also be stepping down.

‘We would like to thank Alfons for his great contribution to the company,’ Blue Bulls Board Chairman Pieter Uys said.

‘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.

Meyer said he had thoroughly enjoyed his time with the Bulls, calling it the ‘highlight of my professional career’.

‘2019 was an exceptional year to be part of the Vodacom 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!’
