Matt Miller to leave Australian Sports Commission

Matt Miller to leave Australian Sports Commission
March 31, 2011

Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Chief Executive Matt Miller will leave his position as of tomorrow (1st April).

ASC Chairman Warwick Smith AM made the announcement yesterday, stating "Matt and I have come to the decision that the time is right for him to move on and allow a new chief executive the opportunity to not only lead the ASC but to finish the reform work we have started.

"On behalf of the Board I would personally like to thank Matt for the vital role he has played in commencing the implementation of the Government's new sport agenda.

"Since commencing as Chief Executive in May 2009 Matt has worked tirelessly to ensure the ASC is best positioned to deliver on the Government's vision and is better engaged with Australian sport at all levels.

"The past two years have seen some exciting challenges for the Board, Chief Executive and broader organisation, and Matt's leadership has been pivotal to the great advances the ASC has made over this period.

"The building blocks to ensure the successful implementation of the Government's vision for sport 'The Pathway to Success' have been laid, record new funding for high performance and participation is flowing to sports, the Commission has been restructured to meet the needs of the Government's reform agenda and we now have much stronger relationships with key partners including the Australian Olympic Committee, Australian Paralympic Committee and Australian Commonwealth Games Association, and State and Territory Departments of Sport and Recreation.

"We will shortly start the recruitment process to replace Matt, but in the interim, AIS Director, Professor Peter Fricker OAM, will lead the Commission in the acting Chief Executive role.

"Once again I would like to thank Matt for the hard work, drive and passion he has given to the ASC and wish him the best of luck in his future."
