The 2017 Maccabiah Games is now a wonderful memory for so many athletes, volunteers, management and the community as a whole. We now look towards the 2021 games for new memories to be created.

It takes years of rigorous planning and a dedicated team to prepare and send more than 500 Australian delegates (including athletes, coaches and officials) to the Games in Israel.

Melbourne-based Simone is highly enthusiastic and passionate about Maccabi. She has held various management roles in Maccabi Basketball and Ajax Cricket Clubs and most recently played a critical role in the organisation of Junior Carnival 2018.

Simone has a finance and marketing background and brings to the role exceptional organisational and project management skills, having worked for over 20 years in multinational companies. Simone is a natural leader and has a wonderful ability to build strong relationships. We know our teams and our clubs will enjoy working with her.

We look forward to seeing Simone bring together a cohesive team with a strong work ethic and culture to provide an athlete-centric experience.

Simone is a valuable addition to the Maccabiah Executive Team, which includes Barry Smorgon as Head of Delegation, Mikki Silverman, Chair of International Sport, Sydney Kahn as Finance Manager and Ellana Aarons, Executive Director of Maccabi Australia.

Mikki Silverman, Chair of International Sport said “The Maccabi Australia board are thrilled with Simone’s appointment and know that she will lead our Australian Delegation with integrity, respect and passion”

A Maccabi spokesperson added: ” We thank Sharon Marlow for her work in bringing together many high-quality candidates.”
