Also on the night, CEO of Sasrapid John Cranwell took home the Sports SA Award for the OAMPS Administrator of the Year, which acknowledges his significant contribution to the sports industry. “This award really recognises the great work of the whole Sasrapid Team. Over the last 12 months there have been a number of significant changes within the organisation and at each step, the Sasrapid Team have continued to drive inclusion with passion and integrity.” Most significantly, our rebrand, new ambassador program and continued development of partnerships have created a strong foundation to develop the membership structure and transition project which are integral to the organisations strategic priorities and future growth. The organisation earlier this year secured the AFL great and South Australian legend, Andrew Jarman as an Ambassador for Sasrapid.
