The Virden oil capitals are currently undergoing some changes to its office staff as we head into the 2018-19 season.
Riley Wowk, the game day coordinator will now be taking on more marketing and social media responsibility. He’ll be taking a more hands on approach on how the team is presented.
“I’m excited to work more with the team and to grow into this space. I look forward to working on more audio and visual media in the future to help make the fan experience better than ever,” Wowk said.
Jamie Hodson, director of business and hockey operations, had this to say about Riley taking on this position: “The hockey club started a relationship with Riley through the latter half of last season. He has a strong passion for the hockey club and it shown through in his work. His videos and social media efforts are top notch. Riley is a Virdenite and is recognized in the community and is a real people person. We look forward to having Riley committed to our hockey team moving forward.”
Teresa Heritage is continuing her position as Office Manager and Billet Coordinator. “Teresa has been a main stay for this hockey club from day one off the ice in handling billet, merchandise, and other facets of the hockey club,” Hodson said. “She has taken over managing day to day activities in the office and her continued efforts with the team do not go unnoticed inside and outside of the club.”
Lanny Stewart meanwhile, has transitioned into more of a back seat role with the organization as a feature writer. He’ll be providing in-depth feature stories on the players and the organization as a whole.
“I’ve already worked on a few feature pieces for the organization and it’s been a blast,” Stewart said. “This arrangement provides me the opportunity to focus on feature writing, which is a passion of mine. I want to thank the Oil Caps organization for everything they’ve done for me and wish them luck next season.”
“I want to thank Lanny for his efforts last year. He had a vision for the team through our marketing efforts that didn’t go unnoticed,” Hodson said. “In saying that, this is a role that more suits Lanny moving forward with our organization and other endeavours he’s moving forward with.”
