AFL Western District's new senior operations coordinator Mike Farrow is excited to renew relationships with football and netball clubs when he starts on Monday.
Farrow was Hampden league chief executive officer for five years prior to the launch of the Regional Administration Centre in 2017.
Farrow has been Warrnambool Racing Club's beach supervisor for the past three years and has held administrative positions, including netball coordinator, at Hampden league club Port Fairy.
The long-time administrator is "very excited" to jump into his new role.
He looks forward to assisting all clubs and helping volunteers.
Alicia Drew has been appointed football development manager for the Hampden region, replacing the recently retired Alan Thompson.
Drew was the administrative body's operations coordinator and has played a pivotal role in developing women's football in the south-west.
"I'm pretty excited, I've already starting reaching out to a few clubs and people have been pretty positive, which has been lovely," she said.
Drew is looking forward to being more hands-on in her new role.
She'll work closely with club development and finance officer Tim Mason to support clubs on and off the field.
Annabel Jones, originally from Warrnambool, is the new operations coordinator and will support competitions in the western region.
She has worked in marketing and organisational roles with Edelman PR and Sportsgirl.
