Director Appointments

It is with pleasure that we can now announce the successful candidates in the Director nomination process for the Board of West Adelaide Football and Footballers’ Clubs.

Each commencing their terms at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting, we welcome new Directors; Bradley Abraham and Emma Grigson-Gair.

Bradley will step into the Sponsorship Director role, and brings with him a wealth of experience in both Executive and Director roles from a broad range of organisations. A lifelong member of the Club, Bradley looks forward to bringing his expertise back to the Boardroom after a five year stint as a Director from 2008 – 2013. Bradley brings a strong background in generating sponsorship and also a unique perspective on the importance of membership and engagement. Nominated for a three year term, Bradley’s valuable skillset will complement the current Directors’ expertise.

Emma joins the Board with the portfolio of People, Culture and Governance Director and will commence a three year term at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting on February 10, 2021. The holder of a Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Health Science and Bachelor of Commerce/Sports Management, Emma brings with her a broad range of experience developed through an extensive career in both the military and government. Emma has held executive leadership roles for over 18 years and has also utilised her skills in the sporting sector through Director roles in both netball and harness racing.

At this time we can also announce that Troy Abbott will commence a further two year Director’s term as Assets and Venue Director. As the only nominee in the recent call for candidates for Member Elected Directors, per the Constitution (20.4.4) Troy will be declared duly elected at the upcoming Annual General Meeting.
