CLM adds locals to Counties Manukau community team

Community Leisure Management (CLM) is pleased to announce Daniel Cork and Jason McIntosh-Kerr have joined the team as Sector Development/Spaces & Places Manager and Coaching Manager respectively.

CLM CEO Craig Carter is excited about the new additions to the team and the expertise and local connections they bring.

“At CLM, we’re about getting out and about in the Counties Manukau community – something we’ve done for the last 20 years in various areas,” says Craig. “Daniel and Jason, with their skills and experience, will boost our capability as we deliver sport and recreation programmes and services that best support our Counties Manukau community and meet local needs.”

As Sector Development/Spaces & Places Manager, Daniel brings 20 years’ sport and recreation experience in Counties Manukau and wider Auckland, with significant local community connections. His most recent role is Community Nutrition and Physical Activity Advisor with responsibility for the Targeted Populations Programme in the region.

Newly appointed Coaching Manager, Jason McIntosh-Kerr is also a proud Counties Manukau local, most recently Coaching Lead in the area. He has extensive coaching, development and playing experience across several sporting codes including rugby, rugby league, sprint and strength training, and boxing.

Jason and Daniel join recently appointed team members and fellow Counties Manukau locals: Bernadette Pone (Bernie), Community Sport Engagement Manager; Surinder Edwards, Young People’s Manager; and Liz Tupuhi, Community Sport Advisor. The team will grow with further community-facing appointments to be made.

The appointments are in response to Aktive – Auckland Sport & Recreation (Aktive) announcing CLM as the key delivery partner of The Auckland Approach to Community Sport in the Counties Manukau area. This strategy represents a shift in how community sport is delivered across a complex environment. It depends upon a unified and targeted approach, and one that develops a community’s ongoing ability to engage people and increase participation through varied quality opportunities.

Craig adds: “This is a team of stars who are focused on delivering for the Counties Manukau community and we’re proud to have them join CLM.”

CLM has been holding a series (5) of Community Open Days through October and November throughout the Counties Manukau region encouraging local engagement around the future of local parks and the sporting and recreation options and opportunities.
