New BSRA Executive Officer – Matt Marden

By Rachael Kininmonth - 07/09/2023

The BSRA are thrilled to announce Matt Marden as the incoming Executive Officer from 1 October 2023, replacing outgoing Rachael Kininmonth who has held the role for the past 9 years and moves to Hong Kong for another career opportunity.


Matt has been involved with the BSRA since 2007 when he first began coaching schoolgirls and over the past eleven years has honed his skills in sport management in roles as Rowing Director at Stuartholme School and Brisbane Grammar School. Matt will be combining his current role at Brisbane Grammar School with his new position. The Executive Officer role is his opportunity to be involved in a sport management capacity and shape the competitive future of schoolgirl rowing. Through a vibrant competition Matt wishes to build on the contribution that sport in general and rowing in particular, can make as a part of the journey toward physical, mental and emotional competency during the schooling years and beyond.


Matt aims to build on the 17 years engagement with the BSRA, to continue a modern, diverse and expansive association, enriched by the core principle of inclusivity, that will broaden the appeal of the sport and increase numbers to become the envy of schoolgirl rowing competitions around the country.


Matt commences in the role on 1 October 2023.
