Club recruit new Commercial team
Motherwell FC has completely revamped its Commercial & Hospitality Department with three recent recruits.
Heading the new department is Suzanne Reid, who joined the club back in mid January after twelve years at Celtic FC. Suzie, a life-long ‘Well fan, was Sponsorships Manager for the Hoops for a decade, but joins on at ‘Well to lead the club’s entire commercial operation.
Also joining is Peter Gemmell, who has taken the role of Business Development Manager. Peter has spent several years at the Scottish FA and was a focal part of the successful Business Club ran by the Association. Peter has also worked in sales for Camelot.
Finally, Bernadette Brannan is the clubs’ new Hospitality & Events Manager. Bernadette, who has also worked for Celtic FC as well as roles in both the public and private sector, will oversee all aspects of the club’s matchday hospitality offering, as well as all MFC club events, both internal and external, as well as day delegates and conferences.
Head of Commercial & Marketing Suzanne said: “I am delighted with the Commercial team we’re putting together at Motherwell, one focused on making significant improvements to what we offer.
“I have spent the first six to eight weeks reviewing what we do as a club and will make positive changes wherever required. I hope current, lapsed and new commercial partners, sponsors, advertisers, as well as supporters, will start to see and feel a difference.”
Chief Operating Officer Alan Burrows added: “I am thrilled to have attracted three members of staff with the knowledge, experience and talent that Suzanne, Peter and Bernadette possess.
“On top of these three appointments, over the last eight months we’ve added a brilliant Fan Engagement Manager in Ryan Murrant, who has been making great progress on a number of fronts.
“In addition, journalist Lewis Irons also joined our media team from the Galloway Gazette and Stuart Harker joined Paul Matthew in the Pitchcare Team from the gWest course in Perthshire. We’ve also made significant improvements to the Ground Maintenance and Accounts & Finance teams too, but will always look to improve in all areas.”
