Liam Bartlett Perth and Andrew Vlahov Perth - Big Men of Perth - Professional Speakers and MC's Perth

Andrew Vlahov is a retired Australian professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball League of Australia from 1991 through until the 2001/2002 season. Vlahov is now managing director and chief executive of listed thermal energy company Enerji.



While still on the playing roster with the Wildcats, Vlahov teamed up with ex-NBA player and fellow Western Australian Luc Longley to purchase the Wildcats franchise from owner Kerry Stokes.

Once Longley pulled out of the venture Vlahov was the majority shareholder of the club (with Mack Hall holding a small minority of shares) until the completion of the 2005/2006 season when West Australian Jack Bendat took over the club.

In his time as owner of the Wildcats, Vlahov was instrumental in the NBL's push into the Asian market including match telecasts to Asian countries and the now discontinued "Singapore Spectacular" (a regular season match where the Wildcats played host to another NBL team in Singapore).

Vlahov appeared in a television commercial for "King Size Big and Tall", an Australian clothing company that specialises in clothing for big men. (Source: Wikipedia)
