by admin on September 12, 2013

Bowls Australia, Bowls NSW and the New South Wales Women’s Bowling Association are delighted to announce the appointment of Mathew Searle to the position of Community Development Officer for the Western and North Western region of NSW. Searle joins the bowls fraternity following his most recent role as the Business Development Manager for Dindas Australia, a national wholesale distributor and importer of timber and hardware products, where in his role he serviced and developed the strategy for a large region, and prior to that as the NSW State Sales Manager for Tilling Timber NSW. Having been an established and keen bowler since 1997, during which he has represented Penrith and Merrylands in Premier League, Mathew will bring a crucial understanding and knowledge of the sport to his new role. Searle steps into the role to replace Josh Thornton, who has relocated states to assume the North East Victoria position left vacant by inaugural CDO of the year Garry Dillon, who has taken over the reigns as Bowls Australia’s CDO Program Manager. Bowls Australia employs 15 Community Development Officers throughout every state and territory, with five CDOs appointed to regions in NSW, to assist bowls clubs in various aspects of their business and club operations and to further enhance and strengthen the relationships between key stakeholders, Bowls Australia and clubs in metropolitan and regional areas. Bowls Australia congratulate Mathew on his appointment and wish him well in his new role, which he will commence on September 23.
