Omagh Leisure Complex gets new manager thumbnailAmanda Whiteman

Experienced leisure industry professional, Amanda Whiteman, has been appointed as manager of the Omagh Leisure Complex.

The Fermangh native is not only keen to ensure customers enjoy the possible experience at the local facility, but wants to continue to improve what is already there both the service and the business.

The mother of two, from near Enniskillen, is also very determined to make the complex and all its activities part and parcel of daily community life in the town.

After obtaining her qualification in Health and Leisure studies at Stranmillis College, Belfast, Amanda began her career in the private sector and worked in such prestigious outlets as the Slieve Russell Hotel in Cavan and the Manor House Country Hotel, Killadeas, Enniskillen, for the best part of the last 13 years.

She is excited and looking forward to the new challenges the popular Omagh Leisure Complex will present.

"I have always been aware of the great work and knew of the many accolades it had won down the years such as Quest, BSF 750 and Charter awards for excellence, so it was an environment I was keen to work in and as I was looking for a new challenge, Omagh Leisure Complex fitted the bill.

I also know that there's a good team here so I was looking forward to working with them too, she said.

Amanda points out that she is also keen to ensure that customers have the best possible experience when visiting the complex and at the same time run an efficient business by keeping an eye on the day-to-day control of the complex activities.

"I knew standards were high here so I was keen to work with the team and progress forward to continue to improve the service for the local district. I want to focus on improving the quality of life for the people in the area and add on programmes while keeping up to date with all changes in the leisure industry," she added.

Amanda is also very conscious of making sure the public feel the complex is not only accessible but a regular venue for their recreational activities.

"I m flexible and realistic going forward. I enjoy motivating and getting positive changes and always there to work with the team to provide a better service for the local community.

I always strive to go that extra mile and always like to know the market. It's important to be able to understand the community and its needs and accommodate them accordingly and I'm sure we definitely can deliver that here at the Omagh Leisure Complex."
