Swimming Australia re-elects Bertrand, Livingstone and Johnson

Swimming Australia re-elects Bertrand, Livingstone and Johnson
October 20, 2017

Swimming Australia President John Bertrand and long-standing Directors Nicole Livingstone and Graeme Johnson have been re-elected for a further three years following the organisation's Annual General Meeting today.

Johnson and triple Olympian Livingstone were first elected onto the Board in October 2012, while Bertrand was elected in November 2013. 

Swimming Australia Chief Executive Mark Anderson said the trio's re-election is a great sign of stability within the organisation and an endorsement of Bertrand’s successful leadership.

Anderson explained "the most professional and best sporting organisations have clear direction and stability at the very top of the organisation.

“This does not mean maintaining status quo, as we continue to strive for excellence and continuous improvement at every level of our organisation."

Welcoming his re-election, Bertrand added "it is a great honour to be re-elected onto the Board of Swimming Australia.

“Swimming in this country is of national importance. It is part of our DNA in so many ways. But we still have much to do.

“Within our high performance division, we have four key links which must be world class if we are to maximise our full potential by Tokyo 2020, these are; administration, technology, coaching and ultimately of course our athletes.

“This is a team effort. Each link on this journey is work in progress. We make no apologies for that.

“Within community engagement, again we continue to build.

“The newly launched Optus Junior Dolphins is a key link between the incredible learn to swim industry and club land.

“We are on a journey in partnership with our stakeholders from around the country, again, work in progress."

The AGM also featured a presentation of a signed and framed swimming cap to former Swimming Australia Director Peter Mannes who has served for 14 years as part of the Swimming Australia Foundation Board.
