Another big appointment – one of the most important of the summer so far.
We’ve appointed Dennis Byatt as our new Commercial Manager. To read the whole press release see the club web site.
Some people might be surprised by this appointment – but I want to make a number of things very clear
– Dennis has impressed us in the meetings and conversations we have had with his plans, his desire and his passion for the role
– He is an experienced salesman
– He is throwing himself into the role with the aim (and the need) to raise considerable sums of money for the Club.
His presence adds to the work that Tracey Jones has also recently started doing for us. Make no mistake focusing on bringing in commercial income is our number one priority. Putting it simply we cannot do it on our own, our recent record in this area is poor, and now we have something to sell in terms of having a home I’m delighted that we have the support and resources to make this work – and I hope there is more to come in terms of people whose job will be to bring in income for the club. More about that in due course.
Dennis will hopefully be at the Club AGM next Wednesday (11 June) and I am optimistic that we will have some exciting news to announce on the commercial side already.
Of course if you have any leads at all please send them through as we now have the resources to follow them up properly and forge mutually beneficial commercial relationships.
