CALGARY -- As a result of the ownership restructuring that took place in the spring of 2012, the Calgary Stampeders announced today the resignation of President/COO Lyle Bauer. Lyle has agreed to stay on in a consulting role to effect a smooth executive transition.
“I have enjoyed my time with the Stampeders immensely and thank the ownership group and fans for a wonderful opportunity,” said Bauer. “The team is in good hands to carry on our commitment to solid community ownership and high-performance football.”
“Lyle’s decision to leave was based primarily on a significant change in roles and responsibilities given the benefits of new ownership synergy and infrastructure efficiency,” said Stampeders Co-Chair John Forzani.
“We appreciate everything Lyle has done for the club,” said Stampeders Co-Chair Ken King. “He is a consummate sports professional and has been a great benefit in ensuring a successful ownership transition.”
Further information on leadership succession will be made available in due course.
