Club Liaison: Alan Vickery
Tim is an accomplished trainer and coach, and a successful salesman and service marketing executive, having worked in senior roles at IBM, Optus & British Telecom in London. He loves coaching & facilitating discussions within teams to improve performance and is as comfortable in the board room as he is working with a sales team. He is currently General Manager of a company providing software for aged care providers.
He has a Level 2 AFL coaching qualification and has coached for Cricket Victoria in the State championship pathway system for U 16 boys. He was formerly a President of Hawthorn Citizens JFC, where he is a Life Member. He has two sons who have umpired, with one currently umpiring in VAFA Premier grade and in the VFL rookie squad.
Tim has a Bachelor of Economics, is a qualified Trainer, Accountant & Financial Planner, and is a keen golfer & tennis player.
Alan came to the League from Surrey Park JFC after a long stint on the committee and 3 years as President. Conscious of the need for the League to get out to the clubs, Alan pioneered a role of match day visits to the club venues, extending to support for the clubs in their organisation structure and their administration.
When not at the YJFL, Alan has his hands full managing his own business. A father of 2 (now adults) Alan puts his early-onset grey hair down to staunchly following the Tigers for so many disappointing years, but he’s certainly got a spring in his step these days.
