TORONTO, July 21, 2009 -- York University
York University Sport & Recreation is
pleased to announce the hiring of
Richard Parkinson as the associate
director, business and marketing. In
this new position, he will be
responsible for the marketing and
business strategies designed to
enhance and promote Sport &
Recreation at York University.

As an award-winning marketer and a
coach of national and provincial
champions, Parkinson brings a unique
combination of marketing experience
and an understanding of the Sport &
Recreation department at York to this
new position. In addition to his 19
years in consumer marketing, he has
spent the past two seasons as an
assistant coach with the Lions track
and field team.

“I am very excited about this new position because it is the perfect combination of
my two passions, marketing and sport,” said Parkinson. “I believe I can add value
for the student-athletes, coaches and support staff and I am also looking forward
to rekindling relationships with York students and alumni. We are an untapped
resource that has the ability to change people’s lives in the community and as a
marketer, I am excited about this phenomenal opportunity at the third-largest
university in Canada, located in the biggest media market in the country.”

With over 20 years of marketing and agency experience, Parkinson has been a
proven catalyst for change with a focused understanding of consumer insights
and a talent for strategic thinking. He orchestrated successful brand
revitalizations and identified numerous global market breakthrough opportunities
for corporations like Spalding Sports, GlaxoSmithKline, Dare Foods, Foot Locker
and Wrigley.

At Wrigley he was the director of marketing for six years, first in Toronto and then
at the global head office in Chicago. While there, he identified and developed the
global rebranding plan for all products, creating Hubba Bubba as Wrigley’s “Fun”
global master brand. He also led the global revitalization of the Juicy Fruit brand
through the award-winning, guitar-smashing “Sweeeet” campaign.

“Richard is a highly innovative and creative pure marketer with an exceptional
track record of taking on brand challenges and producing major results,” said
Jennifer Myers, director, Sport & Recreation. “The addition of Richard to our
team adds a depth and dimension which will create new opportunities to grow.
With his impressive marketing background and winning track record, we look
forward to seeing what he can accomplish here at Sport York.”

As an assistant coach with the Lions track and field team, Parkinson works
closely with the throws athletes and in just two seasons has seen the program
grow considerably. His work has resulted in six OUA top-eight placings, one OUA
champion, three OUA all-stars, one CIS bronze medallist and has seen eight
York interuniversity throws records fall. Under Parkinson’s guidance, three York
Lions have recently been named to Ontario’s Canada Summer Games team and
one to Canada’s Pan American junior national team.

Parkinson’s last day of Head Coach for YUTC and varsity assistance coach will
be July 31st. He will continue to work with both the interuniversity student-athletes
and the York University Track Club athletes in the coming seasons.

Anyone interested in applying for the vacant YUTC Head Coaching & Assistant
Varsity Coaching position should apply through online process at York University
