Hawthorn Football Club can confirm Tracey Gaudry has stepped down as CEO of the club.
President Richard Garvey said the club thanked Gaudry for her contribution and wished her all the best.
“Unfortunately, Tracey has faced extenuating family and personal circumstances this year which have made it difficult to continue in the role”, said Garvey.
“On behalf of all at Hawthorn, I want to thank Tracey for her considerable contribution to our club in the relatively short time she has been our CEO. We understand and respect her decision to stand down.”
“Tracey has been incredibly selfless and professional throughout this process and the club wishes her and her family all the best in their future endeavours.”
Hawthorn Director Peter Nankivell has been appointed the club’s interim CEO. Nankivell, a commercial lawyer and consultant, has served on the Hawthorn Board since 2014.
