Rosich, who spent a decade as CEO of AFL club Fremantle before taking the VRC role in June 2020, will assess his future career options while he finishes up at the club. He recently advised the board of his intention to resign.

“After four Melbourne Cup carnivals and working with the VRC board and team to deliver on the VRC’s strategic priorities, it feels like the right time to provide the VRC with notice of my resignation,” Rosich said.

“I commenced as CEO at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and together with the wider team, we navigated the challenges of that period to come out the other side with key success milestones including record membership levels, a new media rights agreement, corporate revenue growth and record economic impact.”
