Hartman replacement close

THE replacement for departed AFL Barwon boss Lee Hartman could be known by the middle of next week.

It is understood the interviewing of candidates for the Region General Manager position has commenced, with a decision likely in less than a week.

Hartman held the role of RGM since the formation of AFL Barwon in 2014, having served as CEO of its forerunner, Football Netball Geelong, since early 2008.

He announced his decision to step down on August 1.
