TOM BONNAFOUX APPOINTED TNSW CLUBS, MEMBERSHIPS AND PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER

 

TOM BONNAFOUX APPOINTED TNSW CLUBS, MEMBERSHIPS AND PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER

TB Joins TNSW

Triathlon New South Wales is excited to welcome Tom Bonnafoux to the organisation in the role of Clubs, Membership and Partnerships Manager.

Tom replaces Chris Cunningham who recently moved to a role with Triathlon Australia as the National Integrity Manager.

Tom brings with him a wealth of triathlon knowledge and passion, having significant experience in many aspects of the sport including running a local Triathlon club (Manly Vipers Tri Club). He has a strong background in managing a portfolio of partners, media and sponsorship procurement and working in membership-based organisations. Tom’s role is about supporting our most important stakeholder – our affiliated club network, and thinking of new and innovative ways of supporting clubs to retain and grow their membership. He will also be tasked with searching for new clubs and new locations, ensuring that we remain aligned strategically with our national body – Triathlon Australia.

He will also look to expand our commercial sponsorship portfolio, solidify our strong relationships with commercial race directors and support the triathlon ecosystem in NSW.

We sat down with Tom, to find out a little bit more about him and what he wants to achieve in this new role!

Triathlon NSW: Tell us more about your main goals in this role?

I’m looking forward to working closely with our 60+ clubs in NSW. We are very lucky to live in New South Wales which in my opinion is the perfect playing field for multisport activities in Australia, so I’d love to grow the sport within our state.

I also really admire the work that Chris did in setting up the Interclub Series. I want to continue pushing for the racing calendar to be the narrative of the season for clubs and members as I’m a firm believer that racing and training go hand in hand to have an engaged community.

I’d also love to work with clubs to ensure that the Triathlon NSW Club Champs remains the premier Club based event in Australia and a significant club focus for all.

Triathlon NSW: You bring so much experience with you, how did you get in the sport of triathlon?

I watched multiple documentaries about triathlon years ago, from Olympic racing to Kona, especially Chris McCormack’s multiple wins, and always loved the idea of doing one, but never committed to it.  It was when I moved to Sydney’s Northern Beaches and met a group of friends that were into the idea of training together that I went all in and never looked back.

Triathlon NSW: How excited are you to join the TNSW?

I’m excited to join a small but highly energetic organisation that deeply cares about the different aspects of Triathlon. Being able to live and breathe the sport on a personal and professional level is something that I feel very fortunate about.

Please join us in welcoming Tom to Triathlon NSW!
