“Welcome” James Kaan – our new Executive Officer
I am very pleased to advise members of the appointment of James Kaan to the Executive Officer position with Athletics ACT.
James will commence work in the Athletics Office on Monday 25 September 2017.
He brings an impressive range of experience in athletics, is a former Australian 800m and 1500m Champion, has represented Australia at World Youth, Junior, and University Championships, is a qualified coach, and has worked with both Athletics NSW and Athletics Australia, the latter role as Coordinator of the Cologne (Germany) training base for Australian athletes preparing for international events.
James has demonstrated a passion for our sport and is looking at pursuing a career in sport administration/management and, along with the Board of Directors, I am looking forward to the contribution he will bring in stimulating the growth of athletics in Canberra and the surrounding regional areas of NSW.
I trust you will all make James very welcome, not only in his new EO role, but in helping him settle in Canberra following a significant decision to permanently relocate from Sydney.
President Athletics ACT
