We are pleased to announce that Chris Williamson has been appointed to the role of Club Manager, effective June 2019.
As a former player, Committee Member, 2nd Eleven Captain and Life Member, we welcome Chris back as Club Manager. Chris is passionate not only about the game of cricket but also the ongoing success of the Prahran Cricket Club.
Chris understands our club culture and has a strong understanding of what is required to be successful at Prahran. His experience to date in his professional career has provided him with strong skills that match up well against what is required for the role. This includes a Traineeship at Essendon Football Club where he was able to experience how a fully professional club operates at the ground level.
As part of Chris' appointment, we have also taken the opportunity to redefine roles and responsibilities across the administration area. Two additional roles as Operations and Financial Assistants have been created to support the Club Manager.
We would like to thank Lisa Grimwade for stepping back into the administration role at very short notice last December. We are so thankful for her focus, commitment and the warmth she shows across the many touch points she has had both within the Club - players, parents, patrons - and externally with Cricket Victoria, Stonnington Council and our co-tenants at Toorak Park. We will miss your enthusiasm and dedication.
Welcome aboard Chris and thank you Lisa, for generously giving of your time and expertise.
