Brendon Gale, who has been with Richmond for an extended period, resigns to become the first CEO of the Devils.

Brendon Gale, the long-serving CEO of Richmond, is stepping down from his role to join the AFL’s new team. After 15 years with the Tigers, Gale will take on the position of inaugural CEO for the Tasmania Devils. He will remain with Richmond until the end of the 2024 season before transitioning to his new role.

The Devils are set to enter the top league in 2028, and Gale’s appointment comes after the recent unveiling of their name and logo. Having played 244 AFL games between 1990 and 2001, Gale assumed the CEO position at Richmond in late 2009.

In his statement on Friday, Gale expressed his gratitude for his time at Richmond and his eagerness to embark on a new challenge. Richmond president John O’Rourke commended Gale’s leadership over the past 15 years, acknowledging his significant contribution to the club.

Transearch International Australia has been enlisted to find Richmond’s next CEO, while AFL chief Andrew Dillon welcomed Gale’s appointment to lead the Tasmania Devils. Dillon highlighted Gale’s impressive leadership track record and his potential to guide the Devils to success from the outset.
