Pride CEO Resigns
CEO of the Northern Pride, Mark Quinn, has announced he will be leaving the club after 2.5 years atthe helm.
CEO of the Northern Pride, Mark Quinn, has announced he will be leaving the club after 2.5 years atthe helm. “Mark has made a very significant contribution and impact on the Northern Pride as CEO over his tenure. He has provided outstanding leadership and vision through very difficult and challenging times. Mark’s financial and business acumen have allowed the club to be in the best financial position its ever been in and we wish him all the very best for the future,” said Northern Pride Board Director, Pat Bailey.
Mr Quinn says he feels now is the right time to pursue new opportunities professionally and for a new CEO to take over the reins.
“The club is in a very strong financial position, in fact the best position it has ever been. Having the current reserves, we have been able to provide Head Coach Ty Williams the ability to recruit a formidable playing roster for the upcoming season. It is a great time for someone to take over and grow it even further as the league is re-emerging from its COVID slumber.
“I am extremely proud of the great work we have done at the Pride. I leave with a strong sense of optimism of what the future holds for the club. The Pride will always hold a special place in my heart,” he said.
As Vice President of the Amateurs, Mark will be even more hands on after business leader Ross Moller’s recent passing. The setting up of Cannon Park will certainly be different this year after spending the last 15 odd years with Ross and the team preparing for the event. He is also pursuing new opportunities which will be made public in the coming months.
Mark Quinn will depart his role in the next few weeks and the Northern Pride Board will actively commence a recruitment campaign to replace him.
