MEET YOUR DIRECTORS
Board member 2017
Martin grew up in Melbourne and has been a keen footy fan since childhood. Although sports such as tennis and cricket took centre stage in his youth, he took every opportunity to pull on the boots during his school years. He moved to Brisbane in 2007 with his young family and has lived in the local area throughout that time.
The Club have been a constant part of their lives over the past five years. All three sons, Archie, Elliot and Adam, love playing junior footy with the Magpies and cheering on the Seniors on a Saturday afternoon. During this time, Martin feels privileged to have had the opportunity to coach each of them, with the support of wife Rebecca as team manager.
When time allows, Martin loves cycling, golf, tennis and getting away camping with the family. He has also thoroughly enjoyed recently taking up AFL9s with a group of mates from the Club and local area - reacquainting himself with the cardiovascular demands of the game!
As a Chartered Accountant and experienced Finance Manager, Martin hopes to help the Board to achieve the Club's ambitions through providing sound financial management and advice. Having previously served as Treasurer with other organisations, he is also keen to ensure that processes are in place to help maintain strong financial management and simplify the workload for future Club Treasurers and volunteers."
