Golden Lions CEO Manie Reyneke has quit in his position as Chief Executive Officer of the union, the GLRU announced.
Reyneke announced on Tuesday that he will be leaving the services of the GLRU at the end of October.
He was appointed on 29 August 2007 and said that “being a part of the Lions was a lifelong dream come true, but it is now time to move on. I am pleased with what has been achieved during my four years as CEO of the Union and I leave with no regrets. The structures put in place will see the union go from strength to strength over the next few years.”
Reyneke will also assist in the restructuring of the GLRU structures during the next three months.
“I’m not 100% sure what I’ll do thereafter, but I do have several options”, Reyneke said.
President of the Union, Kevin de Klerk commented: “It has been a privilege to have had Manie on board and to have worked with him over the last four years. His services will certainly be missed and I wish him every success in his future ventures.
“Manie has been a personal friend of mine for some 30 years and will continue for another 30. I am sad to see Manie go, we will miss him with his passion and integrity that he always displays”, said de Klerk
The Lions also announced that they have started the process of appointing a new CEO. In the interim, Ruben Moggee will be the acting CEO and will be assisted by the board of directors.
