Langley-based Stealth promote from within

Tewanee Joseph takes on added duties as a vice-president with Vancouver Stealth lacrosse team.

There’s a new leader in the higher echelons of the Vancouver Stealth as of today. But he’s no stranger to the Langley-based lacrosse team.

Tewanee Joseph has been named executive vice-president for partnerships and business development for the team.

Joseph has served as senior First Nations development advisor for the Stealth since 2014.

He has served as chief executive officer of the Four Host Nations Secretariat for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, where he negotiated the first partnership agreement between indigenous peoples, the International Olympic Committee, and the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Joseph’s “extensive experience” also includes the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, 2015 Canada Winters Games, Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, and the 2016 Canada Rugby 7s Vancouver, explained president and general manager Doug Locker.

He noted that Joseph is also a Nike N7 champion and served on the board of directors for five years.

“We are very fortunate to have Tewanee take on additional responsibilities within our organization and look forward to having him fully integrated in all aspects of our business,” Locker said.

“Tewanee has a wealth of knowledge and is passionate about the game, and will be very involved in attracting new corporate partners, and organizations.”

Joseph, who played lacrosse at both the senior A and B levels, spoke to today’s announcement: “I am honoured to be a part of such an incredible organization – one that is committed to our community, our families, and to the fasted game on two feet.”

Tewanee Joseph was part of teams that won the President’s Cup twice, as well as two men’s field lacrosse championships. In addition, he played for the Iroquois Nationals team and currently coaches lacrosse in North Vancouver.

“I am looking forward to growing the sport and inviting all British Columbians to join in and be a part of our Stealth family,” he concluded.
