IGNITX welcomes Andreja McQuarrie as Advisor

June 03, 2020

Andreja is a well-known and respected professional in the Olympic Movement. Throughout her career she had played different roles; first as an athlete (Junior World Champion, Olympian in 1984 and World Professional Champion in Alpine Skiing in late 1980’s) then as a multi-sports event organizer at the Pan-American Games Organizing Committee (Winnipeg 1999), World University Games with the United States Olympic Committee, European Olympic Committees (EOC), and was engaged in the Organizing Committees for the Olympic Winter Games from 2002 to 2018. Her extensive Games experience led her to write the Olympic Games Guide on NOC Services in 2007 and its two subsequent updates, the Athletes’ Experience Guide and other projects for the International Olympic Committee.

With her passion for sports and sentimental attachment to the city of Sarajevo where she was an athlete under the Yugoslavian flag during the 1984 Winter Olympics, she made it a point to be involved in the Organizing Committee 2019 Sarajevo European Winter Youth Olympic Festival, the first large multi-sport event in Sarajevo after the 1984 Olympic Games.

Owner of McQuarrie Consulting LLC, Andreja is a person that key stakeholders in the Olympic Movement rely on to bring certitude, an athlete centered vision, client perspective and efficiency. Natural leader, Andreja gains great respect not only from the people who she worked for, but also the different teams she led over the years, valorising the strength of each individual and their contribution to reach the organization objectives.

Today Andreja is also the president of the Women’s Football Club ZNK Radomlje, the only female president of a football club in the first national league in Slovenia and an active and well-respected female leader. She is not only very efficient and committed on delivering for her clients and organizations she worked for, but also a role model for sports administrators, being a great example for the gender equality movement in the sports world.

IGNITX is thrilled to be able to announce Andreja as its Advisory Board Member, sharing the same values she has demonstrated over the years. Her knowledge and guidance will be of paramount importance for IGNITX to grow and develop, fulfilling its goal of contributing to the improvement of the sports and event management world-wide.
