Kangaroos overhaul continues as CEO resigns ahead of Clarkson’s arrival

North Melbourne chief executive Ben Amarfio has resigned from his role, just two weeks after the club signed four-time premiership coach Alastair Clarkson.

Key points:

  • Ben Amarfio joined the Kangaroos in 2019
  • He will finish his role a day before Alastair Clarkson officially begins as coach
  • The Kangaroos claimed their second consecutive wooden spoon this season

The Kangaroos announced Amarfio’s resignation this afternoon after he served three years as chief executive.

He will finish with the club on October 31, a day before Clarkson officially begins as Kangaroos coach.

General manager of football performance Dan McPherson left the club, as did assistant coaches Heath Younie and Anthony Rocca.
