Richardson has been with the club since 2001, from serving as Marketing Manager for the Magpies in the SANFL to becoming CEO when the Magpies were seen as a separate entity in power.
In 2008, Richardson joined Power as General Manager Marketing and Consumer Business and was promoted to Executive General Manager in 2018.
“This is arguably the most important appointment of a club. It’s one that can never be expected. It’s a big responsibility, ”said Koch.
“I have to admit, I wanted someone from outside the club to do the role first. Richo knows that.
“But no candidate we spoke to ever seemed to have the all-round package that Richo brings. I always subconsciously compared her to him.
“I never wanted to be accused of making the easy decision, so we hired Andrew Demetriou’s sports executive recruiting firm to scour the market and put Richo to the test.
“The bottom line was that Andrew decided we already had the best person here.”
Richardson will start his new role next Monday.
