Samantha Magalas has been hired as Windsor’s new Sport Tourism Officer.

Magalas brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience in the management of championship events from planning to execution. As the Sport Coordinator at Ontario University Athletics (OUA), she created partnerships with 20 Canadian universities and multiple professional, provincial, national and multi-sport organizations.

Magalas is a former university two-sport and national team athlete and has been involved with the Women’s National Baseball Team for the last ten years, both as an athlete and coach, participating in five World Cup events. She most recently was a coach at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto.

“Samantha’s passion for sport and for the City of Windsor was clearly evident during her interview”, said Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Her experience, knowledge and connections within the sport community will be invaluable as we build on our success as a premier destination for sporting events.”

Magalas will begin on February 8th, 2016, and will work out of the mayor’s office.
