I am the Communications Manager at WaiBOP Football. This is a part-time position that allows me to combine my football passion at a regional and national level with the rest of my business activities. An exciting project over the last couple of years was the national upgrade of all seven Federations’ websites. The new WaiBOP Football website was launched in July 2016.
Part of my role at WaiBOP Football included media management responsibilities for WaiBOP United, an ASB Premiership football team. I built the franchise’s website prior to their first ASB Premiership season (2013/14) and upgraded it with a device responsive design for the 2015/16 season. I produced regular content for the site and the media, as well as assisting NZ Football with content for their coverage of the league. WaiBOP United handed their national league license to Hamilton Wanderers at the end of the 2015/16 season.
