WP Rugby CEO Paul Zacks has applied for the soon-to-be-vacant CEO role at the Blue Bulls Company.
Zacks, who has been WP CEO since April 2016, confirmed to Sport24 that he was on the shortlist to replace Barend van Graan at the Bulls.
‘I was approached by the shareholders of the Blue Bulls Company to put my name forward for this position. My decision to apply is an entirely personal one.
‘But suffice to say that any employee wants to work in an environment where their intellect, knowledge, experience, skills and business acumen is valued and appreciated.
‘Those who know me, know that I love rugby, that I am passionate about WP Rugby in particular, and that I work extremely hard to ensure its success both on and off the field.
‘I have always been, and I remain, fully committed to WP Rugby in my current position as the group CEO.’
According to Sport24, Zacks’ application for the Bulls job was discussed at length at the WPRFU general council meeting on Tuesday night.
