Centimeter Perfect was born from a desire to help others; its sandbox is exclusively AFL. This came at a time when our founder, Nigel Baldwin, exited a lengthy and successful career in logistics, culminating in the sale of his equity in a medium to large sized firm. Through this transition phase, somewhat akin to a listed footballers end of playing days, facing the challenge of where to progress, Nigel sought advice and counsel to guide him on satisfying unfulfilled aspects of his life. The advice was to find some level of personal fulfilment. This would come through an opportunity within an industry that he was passionate about and would enable greater capacity to help others. The symbiotic objectives of Centimeter Perfect are to help talented and elite AFL footballers through varied means, this deriving a high-level of satisfaction for the agencies team. Working with some of the AFL industries best players, Nigel guides potential draftees irrespective of whether they are in the talent pathway, a rookie B option, mature age or current listed players through each step of the process whilst ensuring they are well informed and prepared. Nigel has a young, sports-addicted family who are actively involved in the exciting world of AFL.
