Football Manitoba will be huddling up to find a new executive director as it was announced Thursday that Rob Berkowits has resigned after 12 years in the position.
Berkowits will conclude his time at Football Manitoba on Sept. 9. Rachel Harper, the programs and communications manager, will take on the role of acting executive director.
Berkowits has accepted the position of executive director of the Jewish National Fund for the Manitoba/Saskatchewan region.
Under Berkowits, Football Manitoba’s membership numbers tripled and he helped introduce numerous development programs in both tackle and flag football.
"Although it saddens me that Rob is leaving us, I understand his need to take this opportunity for a career move at this time," Football Manitoba president Leona Barrett said in a statement.
"I wish Rob well in his new position and I am certain he will be as successful in his new position as he was at Football Manitoba. I am thankful for his hard work and efforts in growing amateur football in Manitoba over the past 12 years. We will certainly miss him."
