AMY WALSH NAMED NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF HOCKEY NOVA SCOTIA
Sep. 26, 2018
DARTMOUTH — After a six week search, Hockey Nova Scotia has found a new leader.
Amy Walsh has been selected as the provincial governing body’s new executive director. Walsh, a Chebucto Minor Hockey coach and volunteer who helped design the association's junior coach leadership program, has a decorated resume in the area of amateur sport in Nova Scotia.
Over the past seven years, Walsh has held one of the most important jobs in sport in our province. As director of sport development with Sport Nova Scotia, she was charged with the growth and sustainability of quality sport experiences for all Nova Scotians. This required strong collaboration with over 55 member organizations, a team of 14 staff reports across the province, and thousands of members of those various member associations.
"We believe Amy is the right choice for the executive director role as we continue to work with our hockey partners across the province to grow and promote our great game,” said Garth Isenor, president of Hockey Nova Scotia.
As the public face for sport development in Nova Scotia, some of Walsh's achievements have included:
Through her role with Sport Nova Scotia, she has also worked with Hockey Canada as a task team member.
"For those of you who don’t already know Amy, we believe you will find her to be a good listener, a terrific team player, and a hard worker who leads by example,” Isenor said.
Walsh replaces former executive director Darren Cossar who held the position for 14 years before leaving in August to join Hockey Canada as the national governing body’s new vice-president of member engagement.
Walsh’s first official day with Hockey Nova Scotia will be November 1.
