Community Leisure Management announces Kirsty Knowles as a Shareholder and Director
02 December 2019
Kirsty Knowles has been a key member of the Community Leisure Management (CLM) senior management team for a number of years contributing heavily to the strategic direction of the company as well as proactively working on new business opportunities for CLM.
With over 16 years of industry experience, Kirsty has developed a key set of skills and expertise that make her an asset to not only CLM but the entire leisure and recreation industry recently confirmed at the recently held Recreation Aotearoa 2019 awards where she was awarded the much-coveted Paul Stuart Memorial Award, recognising her outstanding commitment and contribution to facilities.
CLM Managing Director John Latimer is excited to have Kirsty joining the board to contribute further to the strategic direction of the company,
“Kirsty has developed a strong reputation for herself both within CLM and in the recreation. She sets the highest standards for operational performance, and is demanding of herself and others in meeting those standards, but always with a positive attitude and good humour. From a CLM point of view, it is exceedingly satisfying to have watched Kirsty develop into somebody who is a highly valued member of both the leadership and governance group”.
Last week Kirsty joined the CLM team celebrating success at both the Recreation Aotearoa Awards where the CLM Managed Lido Aquatic Centre won the 2019 Outstanding Pool of the year and at the EVANZ where the CLM managed Trafalgar Centre was awarded the accolade of 2019 Pixel Medium Venue of the Year.
