Carlton chief executive officer Steven Trigg has resigned.

The club issued a statement on Thursday confirming the CEO would depart. 

Trigg will formally end his tenure once the club settles on a replacement.

Carlton president Mark LoGiudice thanked Trigg for his time at the helm.

“The Board credits Steven with driving cultural change across all facets of the Club,” he said on Carlton's website.

“That includes a transformation of the football department and the positive change that it has delivered, as well through our Carlton Respects program, and our participation as a founding Club in the AFLW competition.

“Steven has worked closely with coach Brendon Bolton, the Board and all staff to drive improved results across the entire club. I would personally like to acknowledge this important contribution.

“Steven has guided the club during the rebuilding phase. Our search for a new CEO will focus on finding someone with a strong commercial background who will drive the club to the next level required for success."

Trigg spoke of his pride in where the Blues are currently at.

“We’ve been talking for a while regarding tenure, family and so on and while this is an earlier than ideal decision by the board to make a move, it’s understood. I’m extraordinarily proud of the changes and the strong foundations we’ve made over the past three years,” he said. 

“We’ve grown financially, the football program is in great shape and we’ve been true to our word in redeveloping the list. I’ve no doubt we are a more inclusive club, with a now genuine commitment to equality; and I’d like to think we’ve got people feeling as though they belong again. 

“I have no doubt that a successful era is in front of Carlton because there are so many great people throughout the club and I would like to thank each of them for their great support in my time at the Blues.”
