New Manager Appointed

by Mr Geoff Kelly @ 09:18 PM, 5th Jun 2018

I would like to advise Members that the Board of Management has appointed Joel Cross to the position of Flagstaff Hill Golf Club General Manager.

Holding a Bachelor of Business (Accounting), Joel has most recently been employed in the finance industry.  He has over 8 years’ experience in managing and developing businesses into industry leaders combined with 9 years involvement in a professional sporting landscape.

Joel’s strong financial and management skills are complemented by a specialisation in business development and restructuring.

It would be remiss not mention Joel’s sporting achievements as an exceptional and highly regarded SANFL footballer.  His career has included winning two Magarey Medals (2012, 2015), South Adelaide Best and Fairest (2011, 2015), representing South Australia (2013, 2014, 2015), member of the South Adelaide Leadership Group (2012, 2013, 2015) as well as numerous other awards since joining the Panthers in 2010.

Joel’s distinguished sporting career reflects extremely high levels of dedication, determination, work ethic and professionalism.  Although Joel has had a passion for the game of golf since the age of 10, the board remain sceptical that his golf game will live up to his achievements on the football field.

The Board firmly believe that that Joel possesses the necessary skills, experience and abilities to ensure that Flagstaff Hill Golf Club is well positioned to drive change and development in the current environment.

Joel commences on the 12th of June, please join me in welcoming him to our club.

 Paul Shillabeer

Club Captain
