Rohan Sawyer Announces Resignation From QRL

Rohan Sawyer, the Chief Executive Officer of the Queensland Rugby League, has announced his resignation, effective March 30, 2023.

The decision comes as Sawyer pursues a new career opportunity after serving the QRL for five years.

Sawyer joined the QRL in 2018 as the chief operating officer and was promoted to the CEO position in October 2021, where he has been a critical member of the leadership team and has made significant contributions to the organisation.

In a statement released by QRL Chairman Bruce Hatcher, he expressed his gratitude towards Sawyer for his dedicated service to the organisations.

Effective early April, QRL managing director, Robert Moore, will assume the role of interim CEO while the board conducts an extensive external recruitment process for a new permanent CEO.

Commenting on his departure, Sawyer, said: “I would like to thank the QRL Board and the amazing staff we have across the state for making my time at the QRL a rewarding experience and I wish the QRL continued success in the future.”

On the organisation’s future, Hatcher, said: “As a custodian of the game, the QRL is uniquely positioned to facilitate programs and initiatives to drive growth and engagement, from community rugby league right through to high performance and pathways.”

“We have ambitious growth targets across our game this year and beyond,” he said.
