West Coast Fever congratulates Executive Officer Tamara Sheppard on her appointment as the General Manager of High Performance at Swimming Australia.
The appointment means Sheppard will move home to Queensland at the conclusion of the 2018 Suncorp Super Netball season, after joining the Club in December 2016.
Sheppard was instrumental in the establishment of West Coast Fever as a separate entity, the development of the Club’s 2018-2021 Strategic Plan and Netball WA’s 2018-2022 High Performance Plan, as well as driving a number of critical systems and processes, and moving the West Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS) program to sit under Fever.
Additionally, Sheppard played an integral role in securing the services of League-leading shooter, Jhaniele Fowler.
West Coast Fever Chairman Deane Pieters congratulated Sheppard on the appointment, and thanked her for her service to the Club.
“This has not been an easy decision for Tamara, however the opportunity to return home to Queensland to be closer to family and friends was a priority for her,” Pieters said.
“The chance to play a key role in Australia’s most successful Olympic sporting program is an exciting one for Tamara, and on behalf of the Club, I offer my sincere congratulations.”
“We’re very proud to have a played a role in Tamara’s development, and have no doubt that Fever will continue to be the most professional, selfless and united Suncorp Super Netball Club, to achieve our vision to be the best elite netball club, on and off the court.”
“In her remaining time with the Club, Tamara is firmly committed to laying a platform for the Club to be successful in 2018, and will continue to progress all playing contracts for 2019 and beyond.”
