From the TBA Chairman – Jerome Joseph
TBA continues to adapt to the needs of our customers and the sport of bowling with innovative approaches and new appointments through our refreshed structure.
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Damien Smith to the role of General Manager, Industry. This is a new role that will be solely focussed on working directly with the sector and centre owners and operators to grow.
We are focussed on assisting the sector with financial sophistication, marketing, benchmarking, and program integration to prosper. “A thriving sustainable sector is good for our operators and positions our sport to flourish over the long term”, TBA Chair Jerome said.
Damien is a commercially astute and strategically minded senior retail leader, who thrives working in high performance cultures. He has worked within the retail sector for the bulk of his career and seen success in leadership and business transformation working directly with retailers and large groups. Most recently Damien was working with the Reject Shop looking after 137 stores with $400+ million in annual turnover.
“I cannot wait to start with TBA and immerse myself with the centre owners / operators and the sector more broadly as soon as possible. We will grow together”, Damien said.
Damien commences on December 7 and please all join me in welcoming him into the TBA family.
