Nighthawks Hire Marketing and Business Manager

Lindsay Unrau Crop1

The Niverville Nighthawks’ latest hire is 38-year-old Lindsay Unrau, who will serve as the team’s marketing and business manager.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, it was Unrau’s husband who first brought her out into the more rural setting of Niverville.

“Eldon, who has lived his entire life in Niverville, convinced me 17 years ago that we should make Niverville, what was then a quaint little community, our home,” says Unrau. “We got married and have spent the last almost 16 years raising our four children here.”

Unrau doesn’t have much experience in the hockey world, aside from the excitement of watching her friends play in high school and, of course, cheering on the Winnipeg Jets. Instead her experience is based in the non-profit sector, where she has worked for more than 20 years learning, creating, and advocating.

“My experience in leadership is founded in retail, human resources, and marketing,” she says. “I am a graduate of the Business Administration program from Red River Polytech and am currently studying part-time at the University of Manitoba. I have spent my entire adult life being passionate and working towards making a difference within our community. Whether that’s taking on local volunteer projects, creating local opportunity through the creation of safe and beneficial programs for our kids, or advocating for equality, inclusion, and the value of all people, the goal has always been to make the world a little more inclusive, to enhance community connection, and to recognize and value all the differences and strengths found within our community.”

When Unrau got the news a few weeks ago that she had been selected for the position of marketing and business manager for the expansion Niverville Nighthawks, she was humbled and honoured.

“Working for a not-for-profit is the ability to create and dream big, and my passion is fuelled by the possibilities of what can be,” says Unrau. “The induction of the Niverville Nighthawks into our community brings with it an exciting dynamic energy that I feel everyone is beginning to experience, and to be a part of that and to help that energy grow is thrilling! I look forward to working within our community with so many incredible people, from our board of directors, our GM and supporting staff, sponsors, volunteers, and of course our fans—our biggest supporters. I look forward to what we as a team can accomplish!”

Although she’s very fresh into her new job, Unrau notes that she has lots of goals that she’s looking to accomplish in the team’s upcoming inaugural season.

“I look forward to building connections and developing a strong team of volunteers who will help deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for fans. We have so much on the go, and I’m excited for the challenges and the creativity that comes with this thrilling new endeavour.”
