Kimon Taliadoros resigns from CEO position at Football Victoria




Kimon Taliadoros announced his resignation on Monday, September 4, from his position as CEO at Football Victoria. 

“After much reflection, I have decided to step down from my role as CEO of Football Victoria.  It has been a privilege to serve the game. I am grateful to the selfless volunteers and dedicated staff that provide the resilience and energy that drives football in Victoria every day,” Mr Taliadoros said.

Under Mr Taliadoros leadership, football has always pursued a bold and ambitious agenda.

Early in his tenure, he spearheaded Football Victoria’s response to COVID-19 including navigating the impact of some two years of lockdowns and reduced competition across the state. Under his leadership, Football Victoria was the first sporting entity to commit to 50/50 gender equity and was instrumental in not only securing State and Federal Government funding but in guiding the development of the world-class Home of the Matildas which takes pride of place at La Trobe University, and also houses Football Victoria’s Headquarters and State Football Centre.

Prior to his role as CEO, Mr Taliadoros served as Chairman of Football Victoria for 5 years.

Football Victoria has initiated a recruitment process for a permanent CEO, and will work to identify a qualified candidate who can build upon the foundations laid by Mr Taliadoros. In the Interim, the FV Board has installed Karen Pearce OAM, Head of Equity, Growth and Inclusion as Acting CEO, with a view to ensuring they “continue to deliver on the key priorities” under their FootbALLways strategic plan. Ms Pearce will continue in her current role while she takes on the responsibilities of the CEO’s office in an acting capacity. “The Board is confident in the talent and the expertise of the management team and the dedicated employees of Football Victoria who together will continue to drive and maintain its focus on delivering exceptional football experiences,” FV said in a statement.

“On behalf of the Board and the wider football community across Victoria, we would like to take the opportunity to thank Kimon for his vision, tireless efforts, and for his dedication to the ongoing growth and development of football. His passion for the game on and off-field over many years is evident to everyone he meets, and we wish him the very best in his future endeavours,” the statement ended.
