About OPP Consultancy
Founded in 2016 by former New Zealand rugby league international Motu Tony, O.P.P. Consultancy is a multidimensional provider of business, personal and professional solutions that enhance collective and individual performance.
Motu entered the professional sports industry – joining his home-town club the New Zealand Warriors – in October 2000. Since then Motu has been successful both on and off the rugby field. Balancing responsibilities as a husband and father of five children, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication while still playing professional rugby league. At the end of 2012, Motu decided to walk away from professional sport and into the prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme at the University of Huddersfield.
In 2013, seven months into his MBA degree, Motu was offered an opportunity to return to professional sport, becoming the youngest Senior Sports Administrator in world rugby league. He graduated in 2014 with a merit pass in the MBA programme, as well as the university award for the ‘Best Full-time MBA Student’ for 2013/14.
More about OPP Consultancy
In 2016 – three years after becoming the General Manager of Football Operations for the Super League club, Hull FC, the Club’s Wembley hoodoo was removed and the Challenge Cup was won for the first ever time at the national stadium in the Club’s 151-year history. This came after eight failed attempts in the 119 years the trophy had been contested.
The following season (2017), Hull FC returned to Wembley and won the Challenge Cup for a second successive year. Following a successful period at Hull FC of almost 10 years as a player and administrator in which 3 Challenge Cups were won and financial profitability was achieved off the field for the Club , Motu decided to return to his homeland of New Zealand.
Other notable achievements of teams and organisations that Motu has been involved in, includes the New Zealand Warriors making the play-offs for the first time (Motu was their first points scorer in play-offs) in 2001 as well as being a part of their Grand Final team in 2002. Motu was also a member of the 2005 Tri-Nations winning New Zealand (defeated Australia 24-0 in the final) team that beat Great Britain and won a test series against Australia for the first time in 52 years.
