Rod Butterss

Rod Butterss

Roderick "Rod" Butterss is an Australian investor, with stakes in property development and the recruiting industry.

During the late 1970s, Butterss played in the St Kilda Football Club reserves side, but never made it to senior level. He developed a long association with the club, and became president of the club in 2000, and resigned in 2007 due to a serious challenge from another party lead by Greg Westaway. The entire St Kilda board followed Butterss and resigned the same day.

Butterss founded information technology head-hunter firm Icon Recruitment in 1989 before selling the successful business to United States recruitment giantAdecco for a substantial sum in 1997. Five years after the sale he bought half of his brother's technology recruitment firm Ises, which has a turnover in excess of $100 million per annum.

In 2006, he sold his Brighton home for $11.6 million.

During his St Kilda presidency, he was best known for his association with one-time close friend and neighbour Grant Thomas, who he met in the St Kilda reserves in the late 1970s. The friendship cooled and in 2006 Thomas' was sacked. His long-time partner is Susie McLean.
