Robson will leave his post as Victory CEO on December 22nd before moving to Rowing Australia as their chief executive. 

He has spent four-and-a-half years at Victory, overseeing major changes in that time.

Chairman Anthony Di Pietro said, “On behalf of the Melbourne Victory Board of Directors, we’d like to thank Ian for his contribution to the club.”

“Ian has opted to accept a position at Rowing Australia and everyone at Melbourne Victory wishes him well for the future."

When notifying staff, Robson said, “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Melbourne Victory and while it’s with some sadness that I move on, the time is right for me to explore another opportunity.”

“I’ve derived enormous satisfaction from what the club has been able to achieve over the past four and a half seasons, both on and off the field. I’ve no doubt the club will continue to go from strength to strength.”
