Scarlets can today confirm that Darran Phillips will be stepping down as CEO of the region at the end of December.

Scarlets Chairman Nigel Short says; “We would like to thank Darran for his dedicated work over the last two years, in particular for the significant increase in sponsorship numbers and revenue that he has driven over that time. We wish him well for the future.”

Phillips, who became CEO of the Scarlets in 2014 following his time as a Director of global fund manager Threadneedle Investments in the City of London, says; “I have very much enjoyed my time at the Scarlets and it’s been a pleasure to have been working back in Wales.”

The Scarlets will not look to replace the CEO position and a new Executive Management Team has already been established. Jon Daniels continues to head up all rugby matters with Phil Morgan, previously Finance Director, assuming responsibility for all commercial and business operations matters as COO.
