From building a licensing program off the back of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls at NBA Australasia in the mid-1990s to the world dominance of Steve Waugh’s Australian Cricket Team in the early days of the new millennium, Anthony has been comprehensively engaged with the commercial engines of high performing global sporting organisations.

Using this experience, Anthony has built a career in the commercial operation of Australian Rules football teams.

Harnessing the passion and emotion of team sport, Anthony worked with Richmond Football Club and St Kilda Football Club for a total of 10 AFL seasons – experiencing the highs with consecutive AFL Grand Final appearances with St Kilda FC in 2009 and 2010, as well as the valuable learning experiences associated with lows such as Richmond FCs last place in 2004.

Success at junior levels has also been achieved during Anthony’s tenure with the Australian Under-17 Sapphires winning their first ever gold medal at the 2016 Under-17 Women’s World Championship while the history and current accolades in this sport have been acknowledged through the reinstatement of the Australian Basketball Hall of Fame as an annual event.
