Lisa Alexander AM has been appointed as London Pulse’s new Performance Director.

Alexander has signed a two-year contract to lead the performance strategy at Pulse and will join the Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) coaching team alongside Sam Bird and Fiona Murtagh.

The Australian coaching legend will also oversee the player transition from performance pathway to elite as Head Coach of the U21 Squad.

Alexander has been a winning high performance coach for the past 30 years and served as Head Coach for the Australian Diamonds for nine years.

During 102 test matches with the sport’s highest-ranked international team Alexander won the 2015 Netball World Cup, eight Constellation Cup, five Quad Series and medalled at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Alexander is currently sitting on the Victorian Institute of Sport Board as the Performance and Coaching Expert. She is also working part-time with Leading Teams as a High-Performance Expert and Ambassador.

London Pulse CEO and Head Coach Sam Bird said: “I’m  delighted to have brought Lisa to London Pulse. Her reputation speaks for itself but what excites me the most is Lisa’s growth mindset and how closely aligned her vision of developing world class athletes is to ours. She has worked at every level of the game and believes in the important of working with athletes from the start of their journey to the top of their sport.

“I’ve mentioned many times before that the talent that exists in London and the surrounding areas is exceptional – bringing Lisa to the club will enable us to provide a platform for that talent to thrive and achieve their true potential – including many representing England and other nations at top level in years to come.”

Lisa Alexander commented on the move: “I am excited, delighted and truly grateful for this opportunity to lead the strategic performance program, and coach, at a club I have greatly admired from afar, London Pulse. The ability to work with such a tight knit professional club, a huge pool of talented athletes and coaches, and with Sam Bird as CEO/Head Coach, was an offer too good to refuse.”
