Stay tuned for the updated committee for season 2018!
President: Terry Kernan
Terry was elected for President in Nov 2014 when he took over from Brian Collins who had completed his successful three-year stint. Anyone who knows Terry knows he is completely passionate about success for Macedon Cats and have felt the full force of his drive and enthusiasm in the last few months where he has initiated many changes and initiatives driven by his absolute desire to help the Club. Through his company, On Time Delivery Solutions, he has provided outstanding support as a sponsor. Terry is known for his encouragement and mentoring of young players including his son Jack. He is well qualified to provide support, as he was on the Carlton List for a number of years in the early 1970’s.
Vice President: Tony Carter
Tony has a long association with the club, starting many moons ago when his children were coming through the juniors. He was a constant figure on the committee of the Junior Football Club, working tirelessly with others to build the foundations of what is now a sustainable club and program. The local face of Macedon IGA, Tony has many strings to his bow and spreads his workload across many facets of the club because of the pure fact that he enjoys it. The thing he enjoys the most however is seeing the Cats run out onto Tony Clarke of a Saturday and seeing them get the 4 points..then enjoying a well-earned cold one afterwards in celebration!
Secretary: Lee Christiansen
This is Lee's 12th year being involved at the club and her 3rd year on the Committee as Secretary . Lee is very passionate about Club and has a strong attention to detail but also the Christiansen family legacy of involvement in the Macedon Cats. Most weekends Lee can be found serving at the Bar where her friendly manner and quiet efficiency is highly valued and respected. Lee’s Mum, Sylvia, passed away in 2014 and it is fitting that so many of Sylvia’s family are involved in the Club … and of course that includes Lee.

Player Welfare Manager: Dom Andreacchio
When it comes to Human Relations and Hot Dogs, Dom is our committee specialist. Every home game Dom provides hours of assistance to Dee in the canteen.

Dom spent many years as a General Manager of Human Resources for Australian Air Express and related companies.
