URGENT-Rugby-CEO Brown to leave RFU at end of year
By Mitch Phillips
Brown took over the role in 2017 having worked at the RFU since 2011, mainly as chief financial officer.
"This has been a very difficult decision for me to make, and I informed the RFU Board earlier this week that the time is right for me to step down and take some time out," Brown said in a statement.
