Panthers boss has resigned
THE boss of Penrith Panthers, Warren Wilson, has quit the club, on the eve of the premiership kick-off.
Panthers chairman Brian Fletcher confirmed that the Panthers Group chief executive tendered his resignation last Thursday for personal reasons.
Mr Fletcher said the Panthers board would convene this week to discuss a replacement. Mr Wilson also declined to comment.
In recognition of his years of service to business and commerce through the sports entertainment industry and to the community of western Sydney, Mr Wilson was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) on the Queen’s Birthday 2015 Honours List.
As a 19-year-old player, he became treasurer of St Marys Rugby League Club.
He became Panthers Group chief in March 2012 and immediately began championing fundamental changes which took the club from the brink of insolvency to a position of strength and stability.
