Club Pine Rivers CEO Wayne Moffatt has been elected to the position of Asia & Oceania Regional Director following the recent World Bowls elections.
Moffatt has been involved with the sport for over 20 years as both a player and administrator, with his club at Pine Rivers a five-time host of Bowls Premier League (BPL) events.
Along with the other host venues across Australia, Club Pine Rivers have been instrumental in transforming the perception of bowls in Australia and New Zealand with the BPL competition and Moffatt has led the innovative thought trail.
With a background in Business, Moffatt will bring a wealth of knowledge from the grassroots level of the sport to World Bowls.
At World Bowls, Moffatt will be responsible for ensuring the voice of the Asia & Pacific region is heard on the world stage, with the region firmly established as a new financial juggernaut of the world off the green, while also possessing strong bowls roots particularly across Australia and south-east Asia.
Further to Moffatt’s appointment, President of World Bowls John Bell (England) was re-elected while two further Regional Directors were appointed, with John McArdle (South Africa) set to oversee Africa & the Americas and Garry Collins (Guernsey) to lead the way in Europe.
The election results will be ratified at the World Bowls Biennial Council meeting on April 14.
