THE PEOPLE

President
Enrico Marrone

 

Enrico is one of the founding members of WUSC, previously known as East Nunawading Eagles Junior Soccer Club, founded in 1994. Over the last 28 years, Enrico has been like the godfather of the club leading many important aspects from the foundation and the new pavilion along with continuing the strong community club focus.  

Along with being the club president, you will find Enrico helping out coaching at our kick-off program, supporting our seniors and junior sides and any odd job that comes about.

Treasurer (outgoing)
Anna Tran

 

Anna joined the WUSC Committee in January 2015. In her role as Treasurer, she knits together her professional experiences gained at KPMG of budgeting, forecasting, preparation and presentation of annual financial reports and general financial management with a community lens applied. Anna is not a soccer player but is definitely learning all the rules from her partner and WUSC TD, Luke Marrone, and quickly becoming an avid fan herself.

Outside of work and WUSC, Anna is passionate about personal financial health and is the co-founder of a not-for-profit initiative within KPMG that aims to promote financial freedom as a pillar of one's overall wellbeing. She believes that financial literacy is a key life-skill that is not widely taught but should be free for all.
