Sixers General Manager Dominic Remond moving on

28 November 2017

The Sydney Sixers today confirm that General Manager Dominic Remond will depart at the end of the upcoming season after four and a half years with the Club.

Remond, who joined the Sixers ahead of BBL|03 in 2013, has been head hunted to be CEO of a new e-sports venture that will launch in Australia next year.

He departs the Club with a raft of achievements under his belt, including building average crowds from 13,000 to 30,000, driving commercial revenue to new heights, increasing Membership revenue 288%, as well as assembling squads that have featured in two BBL and two WBBL Finals, winning the WBBL last season. 

Cricket NSW CEO Andrew Jones said Remond will leave a outstanding legacy at the Club.

“Dom will be a loss for the Sixers, but he has achieved so much in his time here that his contribution will long be remembered,” said Jones.

“He has been fastidious about the Sixers brand, fan experience, team culture and commercial targets and has demonstrated great tenacity and skill in achieving the growth and success the club has.

“The Sixers at-match experience is outstanding and fans simply love coming to the SCG. And the Sixers are steadily increasing their community presence through initiatives such as the Sixers Girls Cricket League and the Sixers WBBL-branded ‘Be The Best Me’ leadership program for schoolgirls.

“While still enjoying his work with the Sixers, Dom feels this is a capstone opportunity in his career and the time is right to take it. While very sorry to lose him, we as always want all our staff and players to achieve their potential professionally and personally so Dom will depart at the end of the W/BBL season with our very best wishes.”

Remond said the decision to leave was not an easy one to make, but he cherished his time at the Club.

“I feel very privileged to have work with the Sixers, our fabulous team and the broader family at Cricket NSW,” said Remond.

“This was a very tough decision, but the challenge of leading a new business in the next big growth market was too good to ignore. I am fortunate that Gfinity Australia  has allowed me to see out the BBL and WBBL seasons before taking up the role in February and hopefully we can successfully defend our WBBL title and go one better in the BBL.

“I’d like to thank the Sixers staff and players, as well as Andrew Jones, CEO of Cricket NSW, John Warn, Chairman of Cricket NSW and the Board for the opportunity and their support.”

Remond will finish with the Sixers at the conclusion of this season, in early February, and recruitment for the role of General Manager, Sydney Sixers, will commence immediately.
