Trigg will join the Blues for the 2015 season.
AFL club Adelaide Crows have announced that long-serving chief executive Steven Trigg will quit the club to take on a new role at Carlton.
Trigg, who has been at the club for nearly two decades including 12 years in the top job, will continue to work with the Crows in a limited capacity over the next four weeks.
He said it was the right time to leave the Crows.
“I have loved the job but after more than 12 years, the time is right for me, and for the club, to move on,” Trigg said.
“The club is financially strong with a powerful asset base, and the young and ever improving team plays in the one of the world’s best stadiums.
“We have a record membership and the second highest home match attendances in the competition, pointing to more successful times ahead.”
In 2012, Trigg pleaded guilty to three draft and salary cap breaches and was suspended for six months by the AFL for his role in the Kurt Tippett scandal when he admitted to breaking the rules to re-sign the star forward.
The Crows were also fined $300,000 and were barred from the opening two rounds of the AFL draft in 2012.
Trigg returned to his post in 2012 and is believed to have the AFL’s blessing to join the Blues.
