BA press release:

The Board of Basketball Australia (BA) announced today that CEO Jerril Rechter AM has resigned and will be leaving the organisation on 1 April 2021.

Ms Rechter is departing BA having successfully led the organisation through the COVID-19 global pandemic and a number of initiatives including the development of a new strategic plan, funding and broadcast deals, the organisation's inaugural diversity and inclusion plus reconciliation action plans, delivery of the successful 2020 Chemist Warehouse WNBL season in a hub format, and the awarding of the 2022 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup to Australia.

Upon announcing her departure, outgoing CEO Jerril Rechter AM said: "I am pleased to have had the opportunity to lead Basketball Australia and to achieve outcomes in the areas of diversity, growth, participation and high performance. I thank the many stakeholders in government, commercial partners and the basketball community who have collaborated with the organisation and shared in the vision for the sport."

Ned Coten, Chair of Basketball Australia, acknowledged Ms Rechter’s contributions to the sport and Basketball Australia: "Jerril leaves us with a strong overarching strategy, and having delivered a successful WNBL season, our first Diversity and Inclusion Framework, a Reconciliation Action Plan and a high-level strategy for women and girls. The Board sincerely thanks her for her contribution, and we wish her well in her future endeavours”.

Ms Rechter will continue to serve the community via her current Board Directorships, including the AFL Western Bulldogs Football Club, and by working with organisations with an innovation and change agenda.

The Board of Basketball Australia will appoint an interim CEO while they conduct an executive search to fill the role permanently.

BA trying to spin this as a positive? How many CEO s is that now in the past 5-10 years.

Seems they're as big a mess as most of the state bodies.

Oh how our sport could excel and grow with some decent leadership.

Boy or girl it's always a mainlander and never a Tasmanian - that's quite discriminatory.

She seemed to focused to much on optics, her own career and other non basketball issues and afl. Hopefully next person is more focused on growing, expanding, developing the sport of basketball.

The sport under BA is a shambles. Has been all about self interest and lack of purpose since the 70s. I've never seen it run well. Either boom and bust through mismanagement or shrink and suffer from internal fighting. Now we have idiots running the show, especially in SA. And when they damage it beyond repair they'll walk and wash their hands of it and leave it for someone else to spend decades trying to fight the same internal self interest and politics to have the tiniest bit of progress.

Best just give up, back to AFL.

BA is a shambles with Staffing issues but a number of sports bodies are very much the same.

LK won't get his man in the Ba as lets face it the NBL is slowly falling away after the initial sugar hit of the new league

BA is an absolute mess

COO Stu Coventry resigned with immediate effect during the week
That's about 15 staff out the door including the CEO sacked in the past 4 months or so

Ned Coten is out finally as Chair at the AGM
He has presided over a mess removing two CEOs, Board chaos, State Members sacking a BA Director (Bronwyn Marshall gone quickly) and demanding the whole BA Board resign
AGM has 4 new directors out of 7
Only one has been there since before 2018 and she's a rower...

Arguably the worst BA Chair in the history of the sport
