Tell us online www.innerwestweekly.com.au TRADITIONALLY managers of Australian clubs have had one thing in common -- testosterone. But the glass ceiling has been shattered in Drummoyne RSL with the appointment of an all-female management team. Kerrie Wadwell and Kathy Moran took over as general manager and operations manager, respectively, of the Victoria Rd club in a management restructure before Christmas. Club's NSW spokesman Jeremy Bath believes the pair are pioneers in the NSW club industry. ''No doubt in time clubs with women filling the top two positions will become commonplace, but for now Drummoyne RSL is the first,'' he said. Despite being just 28, new general manager Kerrie Wadwell already has 10 years' experience in the industry. From her first job collecting glasses in St Mary's Band Club, she has worked her way up through the ranks, studying a bachelor of business degree in club and gaming management along the way. ''It is an enormous opportunity to become the general manager of such a fantastic club,'' she said. ''Both Kathy and I are focused on improving our club's standing in the community and broadening our membership base.'' The pair plan to put their stamp on the club by running more family-orientated events, changing the catering and introducing a wedding package. Their plans are sure to be watched with interest by others in the industry. ''I'm sure there will be some interest in what we do,'' Ms Wadwell said, adding that more women should consider a career in the club industry. ''It's not an easy job but it's rewarding.''
