Committee President

Stephen Makin

I have been competing in triathlons since 2003/04 and joined Melbourne Triathlon Club in 2006/7. I've trained with fluid movements for the whole time I've been with the club. I've raced all distances from sprint through to full Ironman distance and have enjoyed them all, I enjoy the social friendly atmosphere the club offers and the competitive nature that exists within the squad. I also love the trash talk, I really enjoy the trash talk 

Committee Vice President

Emily Jeffery

I joined the Melbourne Tri Club after completing a Beginners Course in 2012. The club is a great way to meet other active people who also enjoy getting out and about.
Triathlon is also a great way to keep fit whether you are fiercely competitive or simply wish to participate in an active sport and hang out with other like-minded and active people. It’s also a great way to make some connections if you are new to town.
In my day job, I work professionally in the CBD and the training has helped to find some work-life balance.

Secretary

Peter Mack

My triathlon career has spanned three years so far. I have swum in a squad for 7 years and was inspired to participate in triathlon by people training for Melbourne Ironman. Career highlight so far has been getting across the finish line at Noosa where I intend to go back in 2018 and PB.

Injuries have hampered my training and racing for most of the last year which presented the opportunity to support the club and members. For an individual sport everyone has a team around them helping achieve their goals. I’m proud to be a member of MTC and love getting out in club gear.

MTC is a not-for-profit, incorporated organisation run by a volunteer committee for its members. The committee works hard throughout the year to provide members with fantastic benefits including social events, news, and race day support.

Uniforms Coordinator

Geoff Kohn

I’ve been a member of MTC since completing the beginner’s course in 2014. Coming off a base of no exercise for years, I’ve continued training with Fluid Movements and I’ve gained much personal satisfaction from competing at triathlon distances from Sprint to 70.3. I enjoy the friendly supportive atmosphere of the club and am happy and lucky to have found both a sport and a club which I love.

Marketing and Social Media

Jane Hill

Memberships and Communications Coordinator

Leah Bygraves

Originally hailing from Queensland, I relocated from Brisbane in late 2014 and decided that MTC seemed like a pretty awesome social triathlon club. I've been doing triathlon for the last three years and due to my love hate (mostly hate) relationship with running, my focus is generally around shorter distances (and trying to not get injured).
I have degrees is Chemical Engineering and International Business and a masters on the way in Project Management. Most of my working life was spent on remote underground mining and oil and gas construction sites as a Project Controls Engineer. These days I coordinate tram services for Yarra Trams for large events such as Australian Open, Grand Prix and St Kilda Festival and well as working on the upcoming Metro Tunnel Project.

 

Membership and Uniforms

George Wright

Secretary and Marketing

Tom Green

My career has spanned many areas including product firsts such as the fax machine, analogue mobile phone, CD player, portable CD player and SEGA’s launch into the UK. I have worked for IBM and SAP, involved in business process optimisation through software. I have also optimised the customer experience for banks, reducing the on­boarding from eight hours to 45 minutes and helped the UK Ministry of Defense secure their laptop data with encryption just to name a few examples.

Having been involved in Triathlons for the last 6 years and competing under the MTC flag for the last two, I'm now focused on helping to grow MTC in to the best it can be.

I'm always open to having a discussion about business, triathlons, technology, consciousness/philosophy or food and drink!
