SOUTH Fremantle Football Club Chief Executive Officer Stuart Kemp has called time on his successful career for the Bulldogs, leaving the organisation in great shape as it targets continuous improvement in the future.
After four years in the WAFL with South, Kemp has been a driving force to the resurgence of the club in many areas. With the Bulldogs now turning a regular profit and winning the coveted Rodriguez Shield for the most amount of wins across all grades by a WAFL club in 2016, he feels it’s the perfect time to move on.
Kemp emphasised the club had been very good to him, but it was the right time for someone else to steer the ship.
"My main goal was to make us stronger in our pillars of the business in a tough environment and turn around our on-field performance, which has been achieved," Kemp said.
"The elite staff we have added have helped us immensely in these areas. I will always be a Bulldogs supporter and look forward to seeing some success in the years to come.
"Most of all, I will miss all of the high-quality staff, players and volunteers with whom I have had the pleasure of working with towards a common goal. I look forward to saying my goodbyes at the end of the year AGM."
When asked about plans for his next venture, Kemp said: "I have a few options to work through, however, my main focus is finalising everything before I leave the club. I, like most of us in football at this time of the year, can then look forward to a break with my family over Christmas and come back refreshed for a new challenge."
Some of Kemp’s achievements include:
Kemp will finish up mid-December with the Bulldogs.
