MANAGEMENT AND MENTORING
Amita Weerakoon – Management and Mentoring background
Amitha (Amita) Weerakoon has 18 years of Senior business management experience in New Zealand through the iconic Whitcoulls Group since 1997. Amita was appointed as the Branch Manager of the Whitcoulls flagship branch in the Auckland CBD in 2003. Amita managed this branch with a multi-million dollar turn over and a team of over 70 members for 12 years until he resigned in August 2015 to take up my new full time role as the Director of Cricket at Takapuna District Cricket Club (TDCC) in Auckland.
During the 2016/17 season, under Amita’s directorship and thanks to the collective efforts of the players and members of the Club, TDCC became the ACA Club of the year. During this season, TDCC won four of the six major Premier championships. TDCC Premier men won the Two-day champions (Hadley Howarth), One Day Champions (Jeff Crowe) while the Premier Women team won the Prichard Cup and Perl Dawson. Premier men were the T20 Champions (plate), and the Premier women ended up as runners up in the Premier T20 Competition.
