The General Manager is responsible for managing the day to day operations of the Association and supporting the growth of the club with a particular focus on youth hockey.

Caleb grew up playing Ice Hockey in Colorado and has always loved being around the game. He is really passionate about supporting young people into Ice Hockey. He has supported young teams back home, and when he first moved to New Zealand he helped coach the Mackenzie Bull Tahrs during a stint in Tekapo. He has stayed involved in hockey since moving to Wellington, first as a volunteer youth coach, and now as the general manager. He spent the first part of his career managing hotels and golf courses and he is thrilled to now be responsible for the association’s day to day operations.
