first_imgWednesday Dec 2, 2020 World Rugby CEO Gosper moving to NFL as he seeks a new challenge World Rugby chief executive Brett Gosper is to step down early next year when he will take up a new role as head of the NFL in Europe and the UK. Gosper has been at the helm of World Rugby for almost nine years.ADVERTISEMENT“It’s been a fantastic nine years,” said Gosper.“It has been an absolute privilege to have worked with so many talented and dedicated rugby people around the world. I’ve been supported by two excellent chairmen in Sir Bill Beaumont and Bernard Lapasset along the way, excellent committees, and a brilliant team at World Rugby.“Rugby is a wonderful sport and World Rugby is a fantastic organisation, and therefore it was a very difficult decision to leave, but with a new ambitious strategic plan set to launch and the strong foundations in place to drive the sport forward beyond the pandemic, the time is right for me to begin a new challenge.“I am proud of what we have achieved together as a rugby family. While I will miss working in the sport, my passion and enthusiasm for what rugby and its values mean to so many will never diminish. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to rugby’s growth and success during my time at World Rugby and in particular Bill Beaumont for his support, vision and leadership over the last four years.”Gosper felt that now was the right time to seek a new challenge.“Brett will be a very hard act to follow. But with a new strategic plan set to launch, strong staff and stakeholder relationships, transformed interim committees and a dynamic Executive Committee, Rugby World Cup Board and Council, we are perfectly positioned to continue to drive the sport forward on and off the field and ensure it is as attractive and engaging to players and audiences,” said Sir Bill Beaumont.ADVERTISEMENTChief operating officer Alan Gilpin will perform the role of interim CEO until Gosper’s replacement is appointed.WATCH THE LATEST RUGBYDUMP BLITZ VIDEO:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.
