Suncorp Super Netball Chief Executive to step down
Suncorp Super Netball Chief Executive Chris Symington has today announced he will step down from his role to focus on his family life.
Symington joined Suncorp Super Netball in its second season in 2018, leading the league as Executive General Manager of Events for one year before becoming the competition’s Chief Executive for the past two years.
During his time heading the league, Symington maintained an environment that has attracted the world’s best netballers to Australia, increased broadcast viewership and, more recently, navigated the league through its biggest challenge to date in completing a full 2020 season in a Queensland hub under the most complicated of circumstances.
Advising that he seeks to step aside and focus on his family, Symington (pictured) stated “my wife and I have recently welcomed twin girls into our family, so it’s time I take a step back and spend this special time with my wife and four beautiful daughters.
“Being a part of Suncorp Super Netball for the past three years is something I’m immensely proud of - Suncorp Super Netball is more than just a sport or entertainment product, it showcases the incredible strength and skill of the athletes week in, week out, and these women inspire young girls around Australia and the world.
“I look forward to watching the Suncorp Super Netball action with my daughters for years to come.”
Thanking Symington for his service to the league, Super Netball League Commission Chair Marina Go noted “Chris has worked tirelessly during his time in netball to ensure that Suncorp Super Netball remained the world’s premier netball competition, and most recently leading the league to be the first major sporting code to complete a full season following the COVID break.
“We thank him for his incredible contribution to the league and netball as a whole over the past three years and wish him, Kylie and the girls all the best during this exciting time in their life.”
Symington will continue to work on a number of key projects - including the current broadcast re-negotiations - before leaving on Thursday 10th December.
The Super Netball League Commission is considering options with regards to a replacement for Symington.
