Soccer still rules the day for Gilfillan
During his playing days at Laurier, Peter Gilfillan established himself as one of Canada’s leaders in the game. As a four-time All-Canadian, and a member of Canada’s National team for close to ten years, Gilfillan was on top of the Canadian soccer scene as a player. Today, not much has changed in that respect for the former Hawk who is employed by Adidas Canada as Business Unit Manager: Soccer.
“It is great to still be so involved in the game,” noted Gilfillan, who during his tenure at Laurier was part of some of the country’s best soccer teams.
Gilfillan’s current role includes coordinating all aspects of soccer management in Canada for Adidas. From sales strategies, to promotions, communications and inventory management, Gilfillan is still as dedicated to the game as when he was a star on the pitch.
“The highlight of my career had to be winning the Francophone Cup in Morocco in 1988,” added Gilfillan. “But the days I spent at Laurier were great. It is a quality school and we had a very good soccer team.”
After graduating from Laurier in 1990 with a double major in Physical Education and Geography, he continued to play for the national side with his final international appearance coming in 1994 against Jamaica. During that period Gilfillan began working for Umbro Soccer before moving to his current position with Adidas, where he now outfits the Canadian National team with uniforms instead of wearing one.
“It’s an honour to put those types of deals together,” noted Gilfillan who recently signed a four-year partnership with the National team. “ It allows me to come full circle in the game.”
Despite his busy schedule that includes regular visits to Adidas headquarters in the U.S. and Germany, Gilfillan still remains in close contact with his teammates from Laurier.
“I still keep in touch with those guys,” added Gilfillan. “We achieved a lot together at a closely knit school, that helps keep us together.”
