After eight years on the job, Tennis Australia CEO Steve Wood will step down next month and will be replaced by Australian Open tournament director Craig Tilley.

Wood has been credited with strengthening the tournament on a commercial level as well as helping it expand.

“It has been an incredible time,” Wood said in a statement. “We have achieved so much. I think the platform has been established and it is now time for an intensified push to reinvigorate every element of Australian tennis.”

Tiley was considered for the open ATP CEO job but has a young family and bowed out of the selection process.
