Hockey Wales is thrilled to welcome Gareth Evans to the team as our new Director of Relationships.
No stranger to the Welsh sporting family, Gareth has been working in the sport sector in some capacity for the last fifteen years.
He started out in Newport City Council’s Sports Development Team before moving onto the Welsh Rugby Union where he worked in numerous roles within the Dragons region across the community game and the representative age groups.
He joins Hockey Wales having spent the last five years at Welsh Triathlon. As Head of Development, he worked with his team to grow the sport and introduce new competition structures for the membership.
He also attracted new global events to Wales and worked with external stakeholders to create a televised series of events, working closely with British Triathlon and Major Events Wales on major event delivery.
When not working in sport, Gareth can either be found volunteering in sport, taxiing his children to sport, or enjoying live music somewhere.
Gareth said "I am very excited to be joining the Hockey Wales team. I look forward to working with the other staff members, as well as schools, clubs, volunteers and stakeholders across Wales to grow the sport at what is an exciting time."
