North appoint Carl Dilena as new AFL CEO
14:36 AEST Fri Dec 21 2012

AFL club North Melbourne have appointed board member Carl Dilena as their new chief executive officer, ending a six-month search.

Dilena, a former senior partner at global accounting giants KPMG and an ex-Kangaroos player, will start the role of CEO and managing director in February.

He was announced in the role on Friday after the Kangaroos had tried and failed to lure former Football Federation Australia boss Ben Buckley and rival club Geelong's chief executive Brian Cook.

"We were looking for someone with great leadership skills, senior management experience, a comprehensive understanding of the football industry and someone who also appreciates the unique culture of our club," North chairman James Brayshaw said.

"Carl has been a senior partner with one of the world's biggest professional services firms, played football at the highest level, has been a member of our board for the past five years and has chaired the club's finance and audit committee.

"He comes to us with an impressive skill-set and we couldn't be happier to announce his appointment."

The Kangaroos said Dilena would retain his board position as well as his new role.

He replaces Eugene Arocca, who quit the role in June.

Dilena also played for Fitzroy during his VFL career in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
