GLENN SCHWARZEL - PRESIDENT

Glenn became interested in triathlon back in 1991 doing the run leg for a team at the Noosa Triathlon. He had to learn to swim before I could complete his first standard distance triathlon, again at Noosa, in 1999.  Since those early beginnings he’s competed in several standard distance World Championships and 2 Cross Tri World Championships.

Glenn is the President and a Life Member of the Macarthur Triathlon Club and joined the Board of Triathlon NSW in 2008.  He was the Race Director for the Sydney Triathlon Series and the All Women’s Triathlon in 2010/11 and has been the swim manager and race starter for all the NSW Club Championship races held at Forster.

In 2010 he successfully obtained a $500,000 grant to design and build a new triathlon facility in Sydney’s South West. Corporately Glenn held various administrative, accounting, auditing and key client manager roles as a Senior Executive Officer in the Australian Public Service. Glenn retired from full time work in 2014.

Why does he want to contribute to the sport of triathlon as a member of the Triathlon NSW Board?

My involvement in triathlon seems to have grown year on year. I’d like to see the sport continue to flourish supported by a strong club culture and providing opportunities for juniors to develop and learn. I hope I can contribute to that goal. 

 

MICHAEL GLEESON

Michael was Admitted to the NSW Bar in May 2010 having continuously practised as a Barrister in the United Kingdom from 2000-2009. Michael's legal expertise is in the areas of Criminal, Family and Sports Law. 

Michael is a passionate triathlete and proud member of Balmoral Triathlon Club. Michael's best triathlon moment to date has been the 2014 IM Australia event and finishing with a personal best time of 11:44 minutes.

STEVEN NEWMAN

Steven attempted his first triathlon in 1998 as an unhealthy young man and with discipline and focus his triathlon experience culminated as a Ironman World Championship qualifier 14 years later. Steven is still very competitive to this day and loves the challenge of competing as a top age grouper whilst balancing work and family commitments.

He has been an active committee member of the Illawarra Triathlon Club since first joining in 2002, seeing the club into incorporation and through significant growth in both the senior and junior ranks. 

Professionally Steven is a commercial executive with formal qualifications in Engineering (BE) and business (MBA), he has 15 years of contract and commercial experience on billion dollar infrastructure projects of state significance and has a depth of knowledge and exposure in policy, planning, legal, governance and commercial aspects.  His down to earth attitude and ability to listen and make informed decisions are key attributes that he brings to the Triathlon NSW Board.  

Why does he want to contribute to the sport of triathlon as a member of the Triathlon NSW Board?

I have seen, experienced and participated in the growth of Triathlon over the past 19 years as an athlete, volunteer, club committee member and organiser.  I want to draw on my past experiences and recent input from the Illawarra Triathlon Club to make a real difference to a sport that I love and care about.  Being an active member of the Triathlon NSW Board provides an avenue to effect real change.

Carolyn Egan

Carolyn is relatively new to triathlon, having begun her multisport journey with a Corporate Triathlon. Since then, she has competed in local events, Interclub events, the Huskisson Triathlon Festival and two 70.3 events in Port Macquarie.

Carolyn currently serves as the Secretary for the Orange Triathlon Club where she observes first-hand the enormous benefit that a community like Orange gets from a sport like triathlon. Carolyn loves the sense of community that triathlon provides, and believes it is an inclusive sport for all ages and levels of athletic ability. 

Carolyn has a particular interest in empowering women to get involved with triathlon, and has been integral in the organisation of an annual ladies triathlon event in Orange. She offers a unique perspective for the TNSW Board, as a female age-grouper in a rural area who has only recently taken up the sport. 

Professionally, Carolyn is an Executive Assistant to the Principal of an independent school in Orange. She has previously worked in aviation, transport, events and local and state government. Carolyn is also a Justice of the Peace.
