The Management Team of GGHK2022 are pleased to announce the appointment of Jacqueline (Jackie) Vierow as Director of Sports for GGHK2022.
“I have always been passionate about sports and when I found out that Hong Kong had won the bid, I immediately looked for ways I could get involved. The Gay Games provides such an inclusive and accepting environment, which will be hugely beneficial to the people of Hong Kong. “
Jackie has been supporting the Sports Organisation as Sports Project Lead since 2018 and late last year assumed role of head of Project Management for Gay Games HK 2022. Along with Sabrina Yang, Co-Chair GGHK2022, Jackie has been instrumental in much of the progress that has been made in establishing the sports team and organising the 36 working coordinators dedicated to delivering a successful event. Jackie has previously led expeditions and team-building activities for Outward Bound before getting into recreation and event management at the American Club. She has since branched out into wellness coaching, where she serves as Managing Director for Kindred Pursuits, an organisation dedicated to inspiration, personal challenge, and achievement through well-being and sports.
Jackie’s elevation to Director of Sports will allow Sabrina Yang Co-Chair to focus on the important duties in leading the overall organisation along with Dennis Philipse, Co-Chair GGHK2022. Recruitment has commenced for a Program Manager to replace Jackie in her former role.
