New Appointments

Recommended Posts

Imran Ahmad has joined the Club as Commercial Director and will be responsible for generating and developing new business and investment opportunities.

Craig Mather has been appointed as Director of Sports Development and will assist the Club in reviewing the overall organisational structure and assume financial responsibilities for Murray Park.

Charles Green said today: “My roles have been stretching me to the limit and certainly the commercial side is something we want to improve upon.

“Imran has been alongside from the start and he knows where we want to take the club. He is a very experienced hand and someone I trust completely.

“For Imran to leave his post at Zeus to join us is a very good step for the club.

“The other key members of the senior management team have been working with him since May so it’s not as if we have brought some off the street with no knowledge of the people and the culture of the club.

“In terms of Craig, he signed a cheque for £1million and was one of the founder investors. He has particular interest in youth development and Murray Park is a big cost centre for the club.

“I think there have been issues that we need to address in terms of how the club manages its affairs, how we use the cash that comes in and of course where we are going to spend the money that we are now raising in the market.

“Craig is completely independent. He has come in as an investor and he is looking at things completely objectively.

“When a man signs over £1million from his own bank account then I think he is entitled to have a look at what he has invested in.

“We would certainly like to appoint more people to the board and part of the IPO process will be to enlist more non-executive directors and their role is about governance to make sure that people like Imran, Brian Stockbridge and myself are working to the model code and looking after the shareholders’ interests.

“They can also give us a balanced opinion and that will be important to shareholders.


Anybody know anything further about Craig Mather?

Here is an interview with Mathers when he invested in July. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/scotland/18893717

I'm sure he was involved in bringing Stella to the club and by all accounts he looks mince for the reserves, so hopefully he does better at bringing good youth players to the club and sorts out everything else that is wrong with the youth training/coaches, and not just sign up duds from his sports management company.

It's good anyway to have some new people in and hopefully they have new ideas to improve the areas they are working in.
