New GM Appointed
The WA Squash Board is excited to announce that Leigh-Anne Kaye (Leigh) has been appointed as the new General Manager of WA Squash starting from Monday the 28th of Feb 2022.
Leigh has been in the office for over a year now as Operational Officer which was funded by a grant from DLGSCI.
With the news last October that Dean Williams, who has been the Caretaker GM since Jan 2019, wanted to take a lesser role in WA Squash in 2022, the Board set about advertising the role. The subcommittee went through a very comprehensive interview process with the result being that Leigh was offered the job.
On a personal note, having worked with Leigh for over a year, I am very happy with this outcome and I am sure Leigh will take WA Squash to a new level with renewed enthusiasm and vigour. Leigh takes over with WA Squash in a very sound position both financially and governance-wise. Leigh’s computer skills, organisational skills and depth of knowledge in Squash will see our sport being more technological with some great new initiatives.
The new Strategic Plan is a very challenging one and with the focus on growing participation we must address the need for Facilities. Leigh is across all these issues and I look forward to seeing the sport I love develop and grow in the next few years .
I will remain for some time in a consultancy role helping out as much as I can if and when needed.
