LoGiudice officially took the reigns of the club on Monday after a board meeting.
Mark LoGiudice has officially taken over the reigns from the long-serving Stephen Kernahan as president of the Carlton Football Club.
LoGiudice, a lifelong Carlton supporter, joined the club’s board in 2010 said he was humbled to lead the Blues into the next stage of the club’s history.
“The Carlton Football Club has been one of my lifelong passions,” LoGiudice said.
“My goal is to help deliver the next chapter of sustained success, both on and off the field to give us all renewed reason to be passionate and proud. This includes in the immediate future securing more home games at the MCG, further reducing the club’s historical debt, and ensuring we have the necessary resources in place to rise again.”
“I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Stephen Kernahan. He is a legend of our club who has offered tremendous leadership and guidance. “Sticks” is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve, and has kept our football club focused through some very challenging times.
“On behalf of the Board I would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to Stephen for all his hard work and dedication over his 29 years of consecutive service. We wish him all the very best.”
Carlton currently sit 12th on the AFL ladder after a lacklustre first half of the season, but LoGiudice last week said that he planned to extend the contract of coach Mick Malthouse.
