Drever to Depart

Jesse Drever will be finishing his time as Events, Marketing & Communications Manager at AFL Cairns on Friday 16 February to return to his hometown of Geelong to take up a role with the AFL/Marvel Stadium as Talent Lead – Geelong and run the Falcons program.

AFL Cairns General Manager, Craig Lees, extended his appreciation to Drever for his exceptional contributions during his time with the organisation.

“Jesse’s dedication to enhancing our organisation’s presence through initiatives like the ‘Footy in Paradise’ podcast, the remarkable ‘Four Walls’ short-stories series, and the introduction of elevated digital assets has truly elevated our operations. His innovative approach to content creation has not only captivated audiences but also solidified our position in the digital landscape. Furthermore, Jesse’s outstanding results in partnership management have been instrumental in fostering strong relationships with our valued partners.

“We wish Jesse and his wonderful family the best as he embarks on this new opportunity as Talent Lead – Geelong. His time at AFL Cairns has undoubtedly prepared him to excel in this leadership role, and we wish him all the best in this exciting new chapter of his career.”

Drever acknowledged all in the #footyinparadise family for their contributions to our great game.

“The Board and staff at AFL Cairns & Cazalys do an amazing job and are unbelievably professional, and I couldn’t be more appreciative of the opportunity and the friendships I have developed in my time up here.

“I want to acknowledge the dedication of the volunteers, staff and people in our footy family here in growing our great game. #footyinparadise doesn’t even begin to describe how special it is up here once you get a taste of it on the ground.

“I won’t be a stranger and you will still see me floating around here and there for little things as the year goes on to continue some of the work started over the last 12 months.”
