36ers, Lightning under 'new management'

ADELAIDE Basketball - parent company of the NBL's Adelaide 36ers and WNBL's Adelaide Lightning - today revealed its new management following the elevation of Guy Hedderwick to a club Executive Director role.

Hedderwick previously was chief executive officer for the 36ers and also general manager of Titanium Security Arena, handling the dual roles with aplomb.

New owner and Adelaide Basketball chairman Grant Kelley now has appointed interim CEO Asa Cowell to the dedicated position of Adelaide Basketball chief executive officer.

Cowell, previously chief financial officer for Kelley’s family investment group, Holdfast Assets, also owned his own financial consulting firm.

The club’s current general operations manager, Joe Tertzakian, has been promoted to the role of deputy CEO.

Tertzakian spent 13 years working for 36ers coach Joey Wright as team operations manager at the Brisbane Bullets and the Gold Coast Blaze.

He also has worked for Basketball Queensland and the Darwin Basketball Association.

Equally significantly, Adelaide Basketball has appointed Marcus Wong to the role of Adelaide Lightning general manager, giving the elite women's team its own dedicated front office presence.

Wong has more than 17 years of experience in the accounting industry and while he will maintain his role as Director of the Bluestone Accountants and Business Advisors, will take over management of the WNBL team.

A multiple Premier League championship-winning coach with Forestville Eagles and at Sturt Sabres, Wong also continues in his role as Chris Lucas' assistant with the MAC Lightning.

“The Board is delighted to announce the appointments of Asa, Joe and Marcus," Kelley said.

“Together with the strong on-court programs the club is building, evidenced by the strong start to the season by both the 36ers and Lightning, these personnel additions reflect our focus on building a market-leading off-court organisation, critical to the long-term success of both the 36ers and Lightning.”

Kelley, who is moving from his Singapore base to Melbourne shortly, will be Adelaide Basketball's representative in the WNBL management structure.
