Capital Football are both proud and excited to announce Samantha Farrow as our new Chief Executive Officer, commencing Monday, February 12.
Samantha arrives in Canberra with nearly 10 years’ experience as CEO at Surf Life Saving NT. Previously, Samantha held key talent identification positions at the Australian Sports Commission in the lead up to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Whilst football has not been prominent in Samantha’s background; sports administration, community engagement and working closely with key stakeholders to build significant growth and improvements has been the hallmark of her career.
Samantha describes herself as an “open approachable person, with a strong belief in community who loves to pursue a challenge. I know the task ahead is one that holds a great deal of interest to so many participants and supporters of the game here in ACT. I look forward to making a positive contribution to all involved.”
Capital Football chair, Angelo Konstantinou described the appointment a fresh start for Capital Football. “We are delighted to have Samantha leading the office into the next exciting chapter. There’s so much going on, and so much to look forward too.
“We can’t wait to work alongside Samantha as the game continues to grow in the region. The Board would like to thank David Palywoda and the Capital Football staff who continued to remain committed to the running the office and all our functions under difficult circumstances over the past few months, we are grateful to them all.”
