My name is Shane Harmon.
This blog was inspired by my daily reading of the sports business stories I collate in my Flipboard magazine Sports Business Today. If you use Flipboard do give my magazine a follow.
The blog is also inspired by my desire to write more and contribute to this great industry we work in.
What is my background?
I am a senior executive within the sports and major event industries with 15 years experience in Australia and New Zealand.
I am Chief Executive of Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand.
I’m a veteran of two Rugby World Cups; RWC 2003 in Australia where I was Head of Marketing, and most recently RWC 2011 in New Zealand where I was General Manager, Marketing and Communications for Rugby New Zealand 2011, the Local Organising Committee.
I’ve also worked as General Manager Marketing for Australian Rugby Union, and as Membership and Direct Marketing Manager for the Sydney Swans Football Club, in Australia’s AFL (Aussie Rules).
