After 11 years playing professionally and 2 years Assistant Coaching in the Australian Rules Football League, Simon Minton-Connell then moved on to managemen and ownership in the hospitality industry over a 15-year period throughout Victoria. For the past 9 years Simon has been back into sports management with the Fitzroy Stars Football & Netball Club, which is primarily an Aboriginal Organisation, in the position of Chief Executive Officer. Not only does the FSFNC concentrate on the 12 sides of football and netball, it also impacts the health and wellbeing of the Aboriginal community members as well as education, training and employment. He has recently moved on from this position but still works within the community. With Simon’s network & experience in sports and within Aboriginal community organisations, it is an obvious synergy between his role at the Fitzroy Stars and Talaria Podiatry.
Simon is a proud Tasmanian, and outside of work he enjoys travelling with Kristy and spending time with his family!
