Health, fitness and bringing people together is what drives Carly. With a bounce in her step, an avid interest in all sports and genuine passion for health and fitness, she has grown the North Group Health and Fitness portfolio into a reputable operation in both Sydney and Tweed Heads. Carly completed a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Management at UTS, then set her sights on taking her skills global, to the bright lights and big city of London, where she worked in corporate health.
Her journey with the Norths Collective family began on her return to Oz, initially overseeing Norths Fitness and then spearheading the execution and launch of a brand new concept– developing the new Norths Fitness, a state-of-the-art health and fitness centre that delivers a personalised health and fitness experience for the club members and wider community. Carly has been a key driver of the success of Norths fitness.
With a passion for strategic development and leading change, next was the business development of Revolution Health and Fitness at Seagulls, transforming the group health & fitness offering into a commercially sustainable and successful operation. This saw Norths Fitness nominated as a finalist for the best club development award at the Clubs’ NSW Awards for Excellence in 2010.
Carly has completed an MBA at Macquarie Graduate School of Management, had two beautiful babies and upon returning to Norths Collective from maternity leave, added Group Risk to her portfolio. Her dual role oversees all Risk Management and Health & Fitness for the Group. By assisting the CEO and Executive Team she ensures that consistent risk polices, governance framework and information reporting mechanisms are adhered to, and the risk appetite is regularly reviewed. She also brings her personality, expertise and passion to the table when building a culture in which risk management adds value to decision making and strategic direction.
Carly has a passion for food, loves to seek out new restaurants, and is an avid follower of UFC. The hype of fight night saw Carly inadvertently give boxing a go – training in both boxing and Muay Thai. These days the wrestling techniques are reimagined for a younger audience, in wrangling two small children into bed, then enjoying the following moments of peace and calm.
