Transition of General Manager

Transition of General Manager Volleyball SA Role

With mixed emotions the Board of Volleyball SA announces that Anne-Marie McAinsh has decided to leave Volleyball SA  at the end of this year. After 7 years in the General Manager role, Anne-Marie feels now is the time to move on to something different, and she is looking forward to building her own small business into the most successful venture possible.

The Board has had the privilege of working with Anne-Marie for over 12 years. Anne-Marie is a true professional, and her passion and vision for the growth and success of volleyball in the South Australian and wider communities deserves recognition, as do the outstanding results the VSA team has achieved under her leadership.

We’ve had many laughs and a few tears along the way as Anne-Marie has managed all functions of the Volleyball SA business (a mammoth task) with amazing commitment, vigour, attention to detail and a passion for developing her team and growing our sport that is up there with the very best. In tough business conditions, Anne-Marie has delivered improved business results and consistently outperformed budget.

Often unseen, her contribution goes much wider than just her Volleyball SA responsibilities. Anne-Marie has actively participated in many forums, committees and projects within the South Australian sport and recreation sector, and amongst our Volleyball Australia affiliates, providing clear direction and thoughtful consideration towards all involved.

I am sure you will all join the Board in wishing Anne-Marie the very best of luck for the future. She’ll be no stranger to volleyball, we are sure of that, and we will have an appropriate farewell for Anne-Marie later this year.

We will advertise the General Manager vacancy later this week as we begin the search for someone to take up the Volleyball SA leadership. Anne-Marie has agreed to stay on for an extended handover so we can ensure everything continues to run smoothly as we get a new General Manager settled.

As we’ve recently had some other changes in staffing, here is a list of the current contacts in VSA:
