Gareth Andrews has worn many hats in his life through sport, media, business and family.
His football career has spanned 50 years in the VFL and AFL. After playing 167 games from 1965 to 1975, including being a member of the Richmond 1974 Premiership side, Gareth subsequently became the CEO of Richmond Football Club in the late ‘70s and went on to work for 10 years on ABC Radio and Television, including hosting the national football program, ‘The Winners’.
For 10 years Gareth was ‘The Analyst’ for The Sunday Age and from 1998 to the end of 2013 he was a Director and Vice-President of the Geelong Cats. He was a vital link in a Club which has become a force both on the field—3 Premierships—and off the field.
He was a joint-founder of the AFL Players Association( AFLPA) and a former President.
After a successful business career, Gareth is now enjoying promoting his passion, the ‘Life Again’ Foundation, which aims to inspire men to be their best.
By telling his own story with its highs and lows, Gareth is able to show men how they can change and lead more fulfilling and purposeful lives.
In late 2013 he suffered a stroke which has given him even more insights into the challenges we may be forced to meet in life.
Gareth challenges men and asks the question: ‘Have You Done Your Best Work Yet?’.
