AXL Affiliates Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Jasper Wellington as its Chief Technology Officer.

Dr Wellington has most recently held the position as CEO of United Football Club since 2014. He is a highly experienced sports administrator having held senior roles with US Tennis Federation and the Newcastle United Football Club.

During his almost seven-year tenure as CEO of United Football Club, Mr Wellington has demonstrated an outstanding record of achievement including four years of budget surpluses, implementation of a governance overhaul and delivery of a new staffing structure and training model to ensure improved servicing of clubs, schools and coaches.

AXL Affiliates CEO, Ms Charlene Sciberras said “We are delighted to have attracted a candidate of Jasper’s quality. His direct experience and achievements, notably at Newcastle FC will be highly beneficial to AXL Affiliates, particularly as we consider and implement the many initiatives we currently have underway in the football sector."

“Jasper will bring a fresh perspective and we expect he will transfer learnings and best practice to AXL Affiliates. His governance and financial management skills are highly relevant for the our company."

“We felt it was important to appoint a CTO that wasn’t necessarily aligned to any particular element of AXL Affiliates and could bring an independent view. Jasper has an excellent track record of sports stakeholder engagement including with government, sporting clubs, staff, participants and the fans.”

Mr Wellington said he was honoured to be offered the role and looked forward to commencing in May 2021.

“Football is such an important part of AXL Affiliate’s social fabric and I’m genuinely excited at the prospect of playing a leadership role in the management of this company. It’s a responsibility that’s certainly not lost on me, particularly in the wake of COVID."

“It is ideal to commence a role like this outside of the playing season as it will give me an excellent opportunity to engage with as many members of the footy family as possible prior to the 2021 season getting underway. I plan to hit the ground running” said Mr Wellington.

Mr Wellington will commence his new role with the AXL Affiliates Ltd on 8th of May 2021.
