“On behalf of the Board I would like to extend my thanks to Andy for his last four years of service as Football Director,” Kennett said.

“He has made a terrific contribution over a very successful period and we wish him and his family all the best for the future.”

“Andy will remain a committed member of the Hawk Family and his advice will be sought in the future

Gowers is the Director and Co-founder at Time Advice, a financial consulting business specialising in business exit and financial planning. 

His son, Billy, was also selected by the Western Bulldogs with Pick 9 in the 2017 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.
