North West Sydney Football to search for a successor to CEO Jeremy Toivonen
The Board of Directors of North West Sydney Football Association (NWSF) is now searching for a candidate to succeed Jeremy Toivonen as CEO. Jeremy has advised of his departure in the coming months.
Toivonen’s appointment in August of 2021 came at a time where COVID had disrupted two previous football seasons, and where transformational change was essential following the ground breaking 2019 merger of the previous GHFA and NWSW Football Associations covering the four local government areas of North West Sydney.
Jeremy has stewarded the operational arm of the association through the wettest year on record and has worked with the Board, the Football Management Committee and NWSF staff to implement some of the changes needed as the newly merged Association grows and evolves. As this is an ongoing process, Jeremy’s successor will have further challenges in developing and implementing the strategies and philosophies underpinning NWSF’s continued success.
“I am very fortunate to have worked with some fantastic football people over the past 16 months, and I know I’ll stay in touch with them,” Toivonen stated.
“I would like to thank North West Sydney Football for the opportunity given to me, and I wish the NWSF football community all the best. I look forward to seeing the profile, participation, and pathway grow, particularly with the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 events coming to Sydney in July and August 2023.”
Mal Arnold, Chair of the NWSF Board, said, “Jeremy will be hard to replace. We’re sorry to see him go, but we wish him continued success in his new endeavours”.
The Board of Directors will be actively searching for a new CEO to help drive further operational improvements and change as NWSF continues to grow and develop opportunities for all participants of the beautiful game in the North West Sydney area.
