A message from SUANFC’s President, Chas Wilkinson.

Tim Air – SUANFC Commercial and Community Operations Manager

Notwithstanding the imminent entry to the North Eastern Australian Football League (NEAFL) in 2012, Sydney University Sport and Fitness (SUSF) and Sydney University Australian National Football Club (SUANFC) recognised the need to further professionalise the execution of commercial operations of the University’s Australian Rules Football Club.

Air’s previous experience demonstrates a very strong track record and acumen for business development and sales, providing SUSF and SUANFC the opportunity to offer Air the role at a managerial level.

The Commercial and Community Operations Manager will be responsible for the execution of key business areas; Commercial Operations, Community Development and Communications. The role will initially focus on a sustained excellence in the recruitment, delivery and consolidation of commercial partnerships.

The growth of the Club over the past five years combined with the step up to a more professional North Eastern Australian Football League, means the Club will be required to increase revenue substantially in the lead up to season 2012.

Over the course of the 2012 season SUSF and SUANFC will continue to deliver quality Australian Football community development programs.

On behalf of Sydney University Sport and Fitness and the Australian National Football Club, please join me in congratulating Tim on his appointment.
