Club News, News

Auckland Bowls is very pleased to announce that Steven Yates has been appointed as our new General Manager commencing from Monday 24 June 2019.

When we advertised the position, requirements included proven experience at a senior management level, sound financial and staff management skills, a marketing-oriented approach and the ability to work with others in leading and growing the sport of bowls in Auckland. We also said that experience in sport administration could be an advantage.

Our decision to appoint Steven was based on him meeting all these requirements and being the best of three excellent short-listed candidates.
