Melbourne Victory Chief Executive, Geoff Miles, today announced his resignation, effective at the end of the year.

In making the announcement, Miles who has held the position for 5 years said, “I am leaving to pursue new challenges after a very enjoyable time with the club. Football clubs bring people together, and my greatest satisfaction is seeing the enjoyment that our fans have had on the Melbourne Victory journey to date.”

“On the back of their extraordinary support, we have experienced success in a very competitive environment. The two Championship successes have been a highlight, but the strong community partnerships that we have developed are equally important, enabling us to make a significant difference to our great City and State, and the growth of football in general”

“I-ve been fortunate to work with a great team of people at the club building a strong base for future success and growth. It has been a privilege to be in this role, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity given to me by our Chairman, Geoff Lord and the Board, and acknowledge the enormous support of everyone connected with the club.” Mr Miles added.

“My loyalties will always remain with the club, and I will enjoy supporting Melbourne Victory from the terraces.”

Melbourne Victory Chairman, Geoff Lord, thanked Miles for his contribution to the dramatic growth of the club, highlighted by on and off field success, since he assumed the role prior to season two of the Hyundai A-League.

Mr Lord said “Geoff has given us a very solid platform for our future, building strong membership, corporate and community support, contributing to our success on the pitch and a positive profile and image in the community.”

“Under Geoff-s leadership we have built a powerful connection with our fans, a strong membership base, partnerships with our stakeholders including community organisations, grass roots football and Government, and extensive corporate support in a highly competitive market.”

“It was critical for Melbourne Victory to achieve early on field success for our fans, and also build a responsible and sustainable club operating with good governance, positive culture and making a difference to the community.” Mr Lord added.

“We thank Geoff for his excellent contribution and wish him well. As he will stay on until the end of the year, we are confident of a smooth transition in management for the club.”
