It's with tremendous pride we announce the appointment of Philip Taylor-Bartels to the General Manager's (GM) role with Waverley Blues.
Philip's background was deemed ideal given his business acumen, hospitality, club and membership first history. This appointment is a "watershed moment" for our club. Fundamentally designed to enable us to navigate toward first division via quality and timely administration prowess over the next five years. Having a professional resource capable and able to operate our club’s full time needs will over time, drive compliance, growth and success that all members will have opportunity to cherish.
We now call upon members, parents, and supporters to reassess the opportunity to consider taking on a structured committee or volunteer role within our club. The club investment in a GM and your own fulfilment will be underpinned with increased committee numbers. Good committees are made up of men and woman with different background and skills supporting each other to advance our club. We urge all members who believe they have what it takes to be a part of the decision making process as we shape our club long into the future. Please call me direct in the first instance on 0418 107 895 to discuss these opportunities.
Our Senior Coach, Bryce McGain with the support of our Football Operations Manager, Stephen Greene are diligently working through our Football preparation responsibilities for 2018 behind the scenes. Based on my conversations with them we have a number of very exciting announcements in the ensuing weeks to make, stay tuned!!
Our immediate priorities as a club, which planning has commenced via our new GM is the following:
• Sponsorship revenue increase
• membership drives
• social event planning
• fundraising functions and objectives
• club communication
• leadership and management
These are just a few high level objectives our committee and GM are working toward.
Would you please join me in welcoming Philip to our club as we wish him every success in this new role. The effectiveness of this role will be greatly enhanced with the support of every member getting behind the appointment ensuring a smooth transition as we reach high with our aspiration in 2018.
