It is with great pleasure we would like to introduce to you our head of Sports & Stadium, Dean Jamieson. This crucial role will lead the stadium sports programs and drive participation in in all sports. Dean has been with us since March and has already implemented two new much-loved programs; Mini Dribblers and All Abilities Aussie Hoops.
I grew up as a sport enthused kid with a passion for Football and Basketball. I played football and basketball up until about 4 years ago where injuries forced me to give them up. Which has now allowed me to focus heavily on my family and my career. My love and passion for sport is the reason I got into the sport & leisure industry.
In 2005 I completed my traineeship at Baseball Victoria, before moving into the Competitions Manager role until 2009. I then moved into an Assistant Operations Manager role at Action Indoor Sports Doncaster, progressing into the Operations Manager role. Finally, earlier this year I was appointed as Head of Sports & Stadiums for Cardinia Leisure.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role:
While in this role I am looking forward to working with the Cardinia Shire, and particularly the local sports associations who use the facilities such as; Pakenham District Basketball Association, Pakenham Netball Association and Pakenham Floorball Association. I am also looking forward to working with and meeting all the clubs that play at our facilities. My aim is to help grow and develop the programs that we currently run in the stadium, but also to develop programs outside of Cardinia Life and to bring sporting opportunities to the Cardinia Community for people of all abilities.
I am a very approachable person, so if you see me in the centre please stop and say hello.
Join us in welcoming Dean to the team!
