Todd Greenberg has left his role as NRL chief executive after four years in charge with immediate effect.

Greenberg’s exit was a mutual agreement made with the Australian Rugby League Commission and his final day in the job is on Monday.

NRL’s chief commercial officer, Andrew Abdo, will take over as acting chief executive.

Greenberg said: “It has been my great honour and privilege to be the CEO of the NRL for the last four years.

“Despite the variety of challenges and pressures I have loved every single minute of the journey.

“Our growth over the last four years has been extraordinary and I am very proud of my contribution to the game.

“I am indebted to the game for the variety of opportunities and experiences that have been provided to my family and I, and we leave with many great memories and lifelong friendships.”

ARL Commission chairman Peter V’landys added: “The role of chief executive of the NRL is one of the most challenging and difficult roles in Australian sport, with a diversity of passionate stakeholders.

“The ARLC thanks Todd for his contribution to the game over the last seven years and as chief executive for the last four years.”
