Career highlights

Andrew Geoffrey Macnish (born 11 September 1965) is CEO at Dewatech, and former Australian rules footballer who played with the West Coast Eagles and Geelong in the VFL/AFL.

Macnish was a Western Australian and his early football was played with Subiaco. He represented his state in the 1986 State of Origin Carnival where he impressed enough to be included in the All-Australian team, performing particularly well in the Sandgroper's 137 to 134 win against Victoria.

West Coast recruited Macnish for their inaugural season in 1987 and he kicked three goals on debut in the opening round against Richmond at Subiaco Oval. On the same ground in round 22 he kicked a career best five goals in a convincing win over St Kilda. After not playing a game for West Coast in 1988 he returned to action at the end of the following year but it would be his last game for the club. He was sidelined again with injury and stayed on the West Coast list until the end of 1991 after which he nominated for the mid-season draft. He finished his AFL career in Victoria with Geelong in the second half of 1992 but could only manage three appearances for the seniors. He did kick five goals in the second last game against Brisbane and gained top Brownlow votes in a best afield performance. Macnish returned to Perth to complete his career with Subiaco Football Club.

Following his football career, Macnish was CEO at the Shire of Bridgetown from 1998 - 2003, CEO at Busselton from 2003-2010 and is now CEO at Dewatech (January 2011 – Present)
