Pignata to stand down as Glory CEO

Perth Glory CEO Tony Pignata will leave the club after four and a half years in the role.


Pignata will return to Victoria to be closer to family and will officially depart on 30th September.


Under Pignata's leadership the Glory won its first ever A-League Premiership and made its debut in the Asian Champions League.


Pignata said he had love every minute of being part of the Glory organisation.


"I leave with treasured memories and Perth Glory will always have a special place in my heart."

Club Owner Tony Sage said Tony had made some huge sacrifices during his tenture.


"Being away from his family for extended periods and enduring numerous spells in home isolation and hotel quarantine.


"During this unprecedented time, Tony steered the club and ensured not only the continuation of the season, but also the well-being of the players and their families.


As he returns to Melbourne and his family, we bid him a fond farewell and wish him all the very best for the future."
