FORMER AFL Barwon boss Lee Hartman has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Melbourne-based Southern Football Netball League.

Hartman, who has been appointed on an interim basis for the next six months, spent six years as Region General Manager of AFL Barwon after five years as CEO of its forerunner Football Netball Geelong before stepping down following last month’s GFL Grand Final.

“I am looking forward to working with the Board, staff, clubs and stakeholders in the Southern region,” Hartman said.

“The competition is very strong with 36 senior clubs and the growth of women’s football and netball is exciting. I look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience to the league.”

As well as heading up football and netball in the Geelong region, Hartman also served on the AFL Victoria Community Club Sustainability Program (CCSP), Player Points System Policy (PPSP) and Salary Cap statewide sub-committee.

“We are delighted to have someone of Lee’s background and experience join us at the SFNL,” Chairman Marc Gauci said.

“Lee will help the Board strategically, commercially and make sure Club sustainability and growth remain our highest priority.

“We welcome Lee’s appointment and I know that the Member Clubs and Stakeholders will benefit from a professional of Lee’s standing in Community Football administration.”
