The Chief Executive Officer of the Samoa Rugby Union, Faleomavaega Vincent Fepulea'i, says he is yet to decide if he should reapply for his job as he counts down to the expiry of his contract.
The position of the SRU Chief Executive Officer has been advertised online, with applications for the soon-to-be vacant job to close on Friday, 13 December, 2019.
Faleomavaega confirmed that his position with the SRU had been put on the market when he was contacted by the Samoa Observer on Thursday.
He said it was an honour to be the CEO for the code in Samoa for four years, given his passion for the sport.
“It was a privilege working for SRU and it’s because of my passion for rugby as I was a former Manu Samoa player and it’s always an honour,” he said.
“My four years contract ends December 19 and like any other position within the Union, it goes on the market. I have no other comment."
According to a copy of the advertisement, the appointment of a Chief Executive for the SRU will represent an important milestone in the delivery of key governance and administrative reforms for the principal body responsible for rugby administration, management and development in Samoa.
The bearer of the position is expected to provide strong leadership for the SRU executive management team and support the board in executing its vision, strategy and priorities for the organization, while ensuring the effective and sustainable delivery of the union's high performance and rugby development programs in Samoa.
The management team within the SRU has not been without controversy in the lead-up to this year's Rugby World Cup in Japan with the high performance manager Zane Hilton resigning in January this year.
But Faleomavaega was of the view that Hiltons’ departure was not an issue for the union.
“People are all replaceable. That’s just the nature of our industry, that people come and go,” he said.
