The Sydney Roosters today announced that CEO John Lee will depart the Club at the end of the month.

Mr Lee was the Club’s first CEO since 2012, and into his second year in the role.

Mr Lee said he was disappointed to be parting ways with the Club at such a positive time.

“2017 promises to be a good year, with success already on and off the field,” said Mr Lee.

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.
