Mark Rice
Mark RiceTreasurer
"I am first and foremost a father to two beautiful little girls aged 3 and 1, as well as to two large fur babies aged 5 (Siberian Husky) and 1 (Belgian Shepherd/Golden Retriever), and a husband to a very amazing and understanding wife. Our four children keep my wife and I extremely busy every day of the week. I am definitely a bit of a jokester; however, my family is my most important priority, and I would do anything to ensure that they have the right opportunities provided to them in life. My working career has been diverse to say the least. I started as an apprentice Overhead/Underground Linesman in Sydney and received my trade in 2014. I have worked in New Car Sales for Subaru in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. I have managed my own business and run Indoor Sports Centres. Most recently, and for the last five years, I have worked within the Recruitment and Industrial Relations sector. My diverse working history has allowed me to better connect to many people I deal with on a day to day basis, both in my professional and personal life. Through my professional recruitment career to date, I have worked on large scale recruitment drives that have required a strong strategic understanding with regular analysis and reporting. I am also an advocate for Inclusion and Belonging within large corporations, and drive this within my current workplace as the Team Lead for our Cultural Awareness and Inclusion Working Group. I am an avid sports person, having represented NSW, SA and WA at the national level in Indoor Cricket since 2008, captaining all three states at the Open level. I have also been a member of the Open Men’s Australian Indoor Cricket Team since 2013. Unfortunately, due to injury this year I will not be attending the Indoor Cricket World Cup, however I will be cheering from the sideline in support. I have always enjoyed anything that can get me outdoors and around a group of people. I am really looking forward to my time with CLAN Midland. I am hoping that myself, along with the other new and current Board Members, can continue to grow our service offerings and support our local community. Especially after such trying times the last two years."
