Kieren is the Director of Airpak Sheetmetal, a company he founded in 2003 which provides ductwork manufacturing solutions to the commercial air conditioning industry. Since its inception in 2003, Airpak has grown from a small two-man operation to become the largest ductwork manufacturer in the region, providing employment for 25 staff.
Kieren has also acted as a Director on the Board of Breakers Country Club from 2012 to 2015, serving as Vice President in 2015. The time spent on the Board at Breakers provided Kieren with excellent grounding in all aspects of Corporate Governance in not-for-profit organisations.
Prior to joining the Board of Central Coast Basketball, Kieren also served as a committee member at Terrigal Wamberal Sharks (Juniors) from 2009 to 2010. In 2011 he joined the committee of Terrigal Wamberal Sharks (Seniors) and then served as President from 2012 to 2015. The knowledge Kieren has brought with him from grassroots rugby league has proved invaluable in providing insight between the administration of the two sporting codes.
The combined experience of all these roles enables Kieren to bring a wealth of knowledge and community connections to Central Coast Basketball.
