It is with regret that I announce that after 3 years as CEO of the Southern Basketball Association, Mark Chivers has announced this week his intention to retire effective from the end of December 2017.
During his time with SBA, Mark has overseen the growth of both our domestic and representative programs whilst commencing our planning for the expansion of our base at tulip Street with additional courts.
Mark leaves the SBA in a very strong position for future growth and we sincerely thank him for his contribution and leadership during his tenure as CEO.
It is the intention of the board to appoint an interim CEO early in the New Year and we will then engage an external recruitment firm to undertake a targeted search for a new CEO. It is our intent to find a high quality candidate whose focus will be to take forward the vision of the new board over the coming years.
On behalf of everyone at the SBA, I wish all the best for the future.
President – SBA
