These profiles will match faces with names as well as provide some background into our Board members. So far, we have profiled Meredith Hodson and Simon Atkins. . 

Our third profile of the series will be Elena Theinschank. Elena joined the Board in April 2019. Elena's answers are in bold. 

Name: Elena Theinschnack

How Long have you been on the Board: almost a year

Role on the Board: Business Development and Marketing

Sports Background: Horse riding and Archery

Affiliated Club (if any): not a member of a club yet. 

Everyday Job: Distribution Development Manager for ANZ at AGCO Australia & Executive Producer at Full Hour show. I am responsible for 120 dealerships across Australia and New Zealand – performance and development.

Where are you Originally From: Russia, I would say. Though the correct answer would be that I am from one of the republics of USSR.

Why did you run for a Board position: I want to bring value to the sport community and I also want to get experience in sports governance. I’m good at strategic management and business development, so I suspect that sport runs in a similar way, I would like to find out if it is that way and if I can be at service somehow.

What do you enjoy most about lacrosse/the lacrosse community: Lacrosse is a sport which has great potential and I always get inspired when I see passionate people.  And there are a lot of amazing and dedicated members in Lacrosse community. I also love the fact that sport unites people and give a sense of purpose and belonging to something big.

I’ll tell you a secret: I have a big vision to bring more of sport to everyday life of mums and girls in particular. I know that lacrosse is a great sport for this. So, I have a purpose, but I always have to remind myself that change takes time.
