Kristi Annear joins the board
Get to know one of the Club's newest board members, Director of Events and Charity Partnerships Kristi Annear.
Kristi was born and raised in the farming community of Narrogin, 200km from Perth. Here, she was exposed to all aspects of grass roots sport, playing netball, hockey and tennis, assisting with the scoring at the cricket club and supporting the local football team.
After working as an Agricultural Area Manager covering the Central Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Esperance areas through seasons of drought Kristi made the hard decision six years ago to move to Perth to pursue a role in the oil and gas industry, where she currently works. Kristi recently built a house in Victoria Park so joining the Perth Football Club was a natural choice.
As a committee member over three years for the Red Shoe Society, Kristi developed her events management and marketing skills by co-organising up to four events a year that raised money directly for Ronald McDonald House Perth. This ignited a passion for the House and the country families that call it home while their children receive urgent medical treatment. One of Kristi’s first objectives when she joined the Footy Club was to initiate a partnership with the House and this will be announced at the 2017 Season Launch.
In addition to her charitable work for Ronald McDonald House Perth, Kristi has managed corporate events and fundraising initiatives for other charities including the Prostate Cancer and McGrath Foundations and Beyond Blue.
Sport is a large part of Kristi’s life – whether it be at Subiaco Oval watching her much-loved Fremantle Dockers, or at the WACA watching all forms of the game. She is a firm believer that sport brings people and communities together and we all benefit from that.
Kristi brings this experience to the Club as the Director of Events and Charity Partnerships and will manage game day and assist with the events that happen around the Club. She is excited for the 2017 season for both the on and off field success Perth Football Club is sure to experience this year.
