Belgravia Leisure has added experience and leadership to its NSW team with the appointment of Katherine Forman in the role of Regional Manager for South-West Sydney.

A former senior manager in tourism, recreation and visitor experiences in the government and private sectors, Forman's most recent role was as Manager of Leisure and Recreation with the Canterbury Bankstown Council in Sydney.

Prior to her time with Council, Forman worked extensively in tourism, including previous roles as Group Operations Manager of Sydney Attractions as well as General Manager of Skyrail ITM, a contract partner to Taronga Zoo.

Welcomed her to company's NSW Leadership Team, Anthony McIntosh, General Manager of Operations at Belgravia Leisure, confirmed she would bring valued experience to the organisation.

McIntosh stated “Katherine’s broad range of Local Government and private sector experiences will provide great support to staff and our contract partners in south western NSW.

“We look forward to working together to continue to build our teams and with Katherine’s experience and leadership we are confident of achieving positive outcomes for our organisation and stakeholders.”

Forman said she was delighted to join the team at Belgravia Leisure where she said her focus would be “to continue to develop and deliver high quality and relevant leisure services to benefit the health and wellbeing of the diverse communities in which we operate.”
