After nearly two years in office, Darren Childs will step down as CEO of the Premiership. The British businessman had to face in an extremely delicate context due to the coronavirus pandemic, a situation that put all sports entities in the world in check.
“While now is the right time to step aside, I will remain a committed supporter of rugby. I am pleased that we have managed to navigate the challenges of Covid-19, and that Premiership Rugby can look forward with optimism.” Childs to British media.
While some prominent personalities in the rugby world question his management, Darren will be remembered for being the one who helped clubs cope with the economic crisis last year, thanks to a £ 88 million bond he obtained from the government.
Now, he will continue his professional career as an advisor to CVC Capital Partners, a private equity firm that owns 27% of the rights to the Premiership.
