Phil Gordos leaving role as Manchester Magic and Mystics CEO after five years

Phil Gordos has decided to step down from his role as CEO of the Club after five years in his role and before that as a Trustee.

Chair of Trustees, Andrew Butterworth, thanked Phil for his contribution. “The Trustees would like to thank Phil for all his hard work and commitment over the past 5 years, especially during the unprecedented times of Covid. On behalf of the Trustees, the staff and all members of the Club, I would like to wish him well in whatever future endeavours he undertakes.”

Phil commented, “This has been one of the most rewarding roles I have ever undertaken. It has also been the most challenging. After more than five years of almost constant change coupled with the massive impact of a global pandemic, I felt it was time to step down.

“It will be a huge wrench to leave a club that has given me and my family so much. My boys grew up here and continue to benefit enormously from the opportunities the game of basketball has given them. The MBC has been a second home, too, and will remain a special place for us.

“I have also met and worked with so many wonderful people, some of whom are now close friends. Without their support, the job would have been impossible at times and I would like to thank everyone who has played their part in making this club the success story it is.

“It has been a privilege to have been CEO and I have no doubt that the Magic and Mystics will continue to go from strength to strength. I will always be a big fan.”

The Board of Trustees will be managing the club in the meantime until a new full time appointment can be made.
