The Board of Directors of Notts County can confirm a major restructure behind the scenes here at Meadow Lane ahead of the new campaign…
The first notable change is a new addition to the Board of Directors.
Luke Negus-Hill joins the Board as Chief Operations Officer (COO) and will have hands on role in assisting Aileen Trew in the day-to-day management of the business.
There will be further additions to the Board over the coming weeks, as the Club want to strengthen both teams on and off the pitch, in an attempt to regain its League 1 status at the first attempt.
Notts County Chairman Ray Trew added: “We are delighted to welcome Luke on to the Board of Directors here at Meadow Lane.
“Luke has worked alongside me since 1997 and he is CEO in a number of my other business interests. He will be a valuable addition to the Board.”
In addition, the club would like to welcome Richard Cokayne into a new role of Head of Commercial and Events.
Richard has stepped up into this position following the departure of Damian Irvine.
The Board has felt for a long time now that these two departments should be amalgamated and they feel that Richard has the credentials to lead this team onwards and upwards.
As a direct result of this change, Patrick Conway also steps up from being one of the clubs duty managers into now Head of Catering & Events. Patrick has shown that he is now ready for this new challenge. There will also be further additions to Commercial and Events Team over the pursuing weeks.
The club can also confirm that both Mark Huckerby and Trevor Hutchinson, will take on much more responsibility around Meadow Lane. Mark who is currently the Clubs Senior Fire Officer will now also take on the responsibility of stadium maintenance and compliance, whilst Trevor will take up the role of Head Groundsman following the recent resignation of Greg Smith. The Club is also looking to recruit a number of new staff in these key areas.
The club would like to wish all five members of staff well in their new roles, as we look to work together to continue to move Notts County forwards both on and off the pitch.
