Matt Badura has announced that he is to step down as leader of the top team in CTP Teams and hand over the reigns to Terry Allison.
Matt led SurfAholics Alpha to become the best team in the ultra competitive Premier League and under his leadership the Alphas have broken more records than any other team in the competition.
They more or less won just about everything there was to win and picked up the $3,000 Season One winner’s prize just a couple of weeks ago.
Matt said it was a tough decision to make but one that had to be made as he needs to free up time to focus on his offline business.
He will still be a member of the team, offering advice and assistance, as needed but will be taking much more of a back seat role.
Matt broke the news to team members and then explained his decision on a post on the @CTPSurfAholics blog.
He wrote: “I went into 2015 having set myself some goals, as I think all of us did. To accomplish these goals meant that I had to re-arrange how much time I spend where and how I get things done…
Sadness And Excitement
“As many all ready know, I do run a full time business offline and I do have ambitious goals to achieve. So today I came to my crossroad, choosing one way will enable me to achieve many of my goals, personal and team oriented.”
“It would be unfair of me to choose the way I want to, and try to hold on to some things that I need to let go. So it is with some sadness that I announce the stepping down as leader of the SAA but it is with excitement that I announce Terry Allison as my replacement.”
Taking an opportunity to praise the new Alphas leader, Matt said: “Since day 1 Terry has shown an intense commitment to our team, he is always there for team members and available more often than I am. Terry shares the vision for our team and I hope you give him the support he deserves.”
On a personal note I would like to say I will be very sad to see Matt go. I met him through CTP Teams and he has become a very good friend in that time.
This is further evidence that running a top team in CTP takes a lot of time and commitment but if that amount of time starts to interfere with business then it is time to reconsider.
