Brisbane Lions chairman stands down

Brisbane Lions chairman Tony Kelly has stood down from his position on the AFL club's board of directors after 12 years of service.

Kelly advised the Lions board last month that he would not be seeking re-election at the club's 2010 Annual General Meeting.

He was first elected to the board in February 1999 and was appointed deputy chairman three years later.

He was then elected as chairman in February 2006 and has spent the past five seasons at the helm.

"It has been my honour to serve as chairman of this wonderful football club for a period of five years and be part of the board for more than a decade," Kelly said.

"But now is an appropriate time for me to step aside so the club can get some new blood and fresh faces in place to achieve our next objectives.

"It's an exciting time and the board has already been active in identifying and assessing potential new directors.

"For me personally, it's time to put my family first on weekends."

As part of an orderly handover, the board has resolved to appoint current deputy chairman Angus Johnson as the new Lions chairman.
