Earlier this year, former Australian netball captain Laura Geitz became a corporate ambassador for AVJennings. Laura is a strong believer that sport can play an important part in developing great communities and, like us, believes in the need for every neighbourhood to have easily accessible outdoor open spaces and recreation facilities.
"I am absolutely thrilled to be working with AVJennings because I know they are committed to active living, which is something I am very passionate about."
Laura gave birth to a baby boy, Barney, in February this year and will take her time before deciding whether to return to elite netball.
Even if she didn't play another game, she would go down as one of the most decorated players the game has seen. Laura has been part of two winning world cup campaigns and captained the Diamonds to the gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The Queenslander is also a committed role model for girls and young women and runs well-being and healthy lifestyle clinics aimed at developing self-confidence.
Steve Waugh AO
It’s said that the second most important job in Australia after prime minister is being the captain of the Australian cricket team. Steve Waugh not only had that job for five years, he was one of the most successful captains in history, but that’s not why he is an ambassador for AVJennings.
Steve is an ambassador for our company because he shares our values. He believes that community matters and he wants to help others enjoy a better life.
Waugh has used his prominence and popularity to help improve the lives of children with rare diseases in Australia and orphans and children with leprosy in India.
He was Australian of the Year in 2004 and Australian Father of the Year in 2005. He is also an Australian Living Treasure.
He has been an AVJennings ambassador for six years and we couldn’t be happier to have him on our team.
