“I’m looking forward to joining the Momentum team at The Trusts Stadium. The gym facilities they offer are some of the best in Auckland and I am keen to see that convert to membership growth in the coming months” says Evans. “It’s also a bonus to have the facility based in such a great Stadium, the two compliment each other well and have some great benefits in being in business together”.
Evans also brings wider marketing skills that will be utilised in the promotion of The Trusts Stadium and Momentum.
