DURBAN – The Blue Bulls on Friday announced Alfonso Carl Meyer as their new Chief Executive Officer.
Meyer will start in his new role on January 1. This will allow the Loftus debutant a one-month overlap period with incumbent CEO Barend van Graan.
Meyer spent 10 years, between 1992 to 2002 as a managing partner at PwC Consulting Services, after which he became the managing director of IBM Business Consulting Services. Meyer currently serves as a non-executive director at First Rand Group.
Blue Bulls Rugby Union president Willem Strauss said: “We are extremely excited about the appointment of Meyer, and we firmly believe that he is the man to take the brand forward. His track record and skill sets speak for themselves, together with a host of attributes that really appealed to the board that appointed him. On behalf of everybody at Loftus, I’d like to officially welcome him to the Bulls Family.”
