Stadium CEO steps down Image

Paul Sergeant last month stepped down from his role as CEO of Etihad Stadium.

Mr Sergeant has served in the role since October 2012 and was instrumental in attracting a range of colourful events to the stadium.

Mr Sergeant told Docklands News that after three-and-a-half years in the role it was the right time for a change.

He said he wouldn’t be announcing his next move for around another month.

“There are a number of different of opportunities I’m looking at,” Mr Sergeant said. He said his intention was to remain in Melbourne.

Mr Sergeant said he has particularly enjoyed the last six months at Etihad Stadium, with a range of major events happening including the UFC, Edinburgh Military Tattoo and speedway.

As for Docklands itself, Mr Sergeant said: “I think the area has come along in leaps and bounds.”

“There still remains a lot of myths around the area, which is disappointing when considering the great work many people, including the stadium are doing.”

“I think it’s got a few years to go and it will keep growing and changing.”

Following Mr Sergeant’s resignation, director of operations of Melbourne Stadiums Limited and long-standing member of the Etihad Stadium leadership team Michael Green has been appointed acting CEO.

Mr Green joined the stadium in 1998 when it was still under construction. He has worked in a number of roles including chief operating officer, general manager of sales and marketing and general manager of commercial business.
