Great notice period, allows for plenty of time to find a replacement.

Probably not a bad thing in some ways. I can't work out why a business the size of VASC needs a Managing Director as well as a CEO when both are full time roles and there is a board overseeing it all.
Maybe this move is part of making some structural changes?

One seemed to be operational, the other strategic..

Why is this such a big deal. I have seen people state that this is the end of V8 Supercars, I don't see how as people leave jobs all the time. He left for family not for a failed series. With that too, people need to realise, V8 Supercars are the only real place Australians and New Zealanders have a good chance at. How many Australians and NZ people are overseas in all forms, only a handful, probably less then the field of V8s now, so we lose this we lose any form of competitive racing for Australia and NZ

Don't forget that there's a Chief Operating Officer as well. It just seems a little top heavy from the outside. No doubt with Mr Braid departing there'll be some thought on replacement and whether an identical role on the same package is needed.

Plenty of Aussies scattered through European open-wheel and GT racing. There's a few over in the US, and Asia as well. They might not all be at the pointy end of the field, but they're all certainly out there having a crack at it.

Matt Braid leaving, is not the end of the world. He righted the ship, with regards to the commercial side of things (go back a few years, and see how many events didn't have naming rights sponsors, in fact, the championship itself didn't either). Commercially, the sport is as good as ever from the mothership's point of view.

Exactly, I don't understand why people are whinging. Not on here, mainly on other forums and facebook. V8s for now seem to be going as strong as any other TV show

in the world of Corporations it is usually to have a hierarchyy.
how ever some organisations run it differently:

In my particular company:

we have the MD at the Top
CEO underneath
State Mangers
etc
some even go down to
Category Managers
etc
I have worked at other places that have the CEO as the power man, and MD's under him/her


IIRC , the Company Secretary is the one who reports to the regulatory authorities>

So an MD leaving is no great drama, just depending on what structure the Board have put in

In a ~35 person operation, that management structure is probably unique..

Backagain has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I think I'd be tempted to leave as well, being asked to oversee the introduction of the "Supertrucks" concept which really has failed the "pubtest" and is not capturing the interest of the average punter, as well as the Super5000 project which was atrociously handled, pitching one camp of real enthusiasts against another.
