Notts County announce the appointment of existing board member, Aileen Trew as their new Chief Executive Officer.
Mrs Trew, who has worked closely with all departments in the football club as a Director for the past four years, takes up the new role with immediate effect.
Chairman, Ray Trew, stated: “Aileen has enormous passion for this football club, and as a dedicated member of the Board for the past four years I am confident that she will embrace the challenge in her new role as CEO.
Mrs Trew, who adds the role of CEO to her directorial duties at the club in the wake of Jim Rodwell’s departure last week stated “I’ve got to start by thanking Jim Rodwell for all that he did during his time at Notts County, I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside him and wish him well in his new venture.
“As we face new challenges now I want to assure all our supporters that we have a strong team of dedicated, hard-working and forward-thinking employees at all levels, all of whom have something to contribute to the vision of progression that we share.
“I must at this point clarify one issue that has arisen recently, which is the future of our Commercial Director, Damian Irvine. Despite rumours circulating, I can confirm that Damian will continue in post and both myself and the Chairman are looking forward to working more closely with him as we prepare to expand on commercial activities and re-launch The Bench, his revolutionary vision that was so rightly rewarded with the prestigious Best Club Marketing Campaign accolade at the Football Business Awards last year."
Mrs Trew went onto to add:“I know that I have plenty to work on in taking on this new role of CEO, but with the support of the team around me, and with Ray taking a much more hands-on approach to the club, I know that we can continue to build for the remainder of the season and beyond.
“So while there’s plenty to be done, on the pitch and off it, I want to assure our supporters that it is business as usual here at Meadow Lane and our focus remains on making Notts County the very best football club that it can be, a vision that I hope you can all share with us.”
