Motherwell FC can today confirm Alan Burrows has been promoted to the role of Chief Operating Officer.
Alan was previously the award-winning Head of Communications for seven years before spending the last two years as General Manager.
In that time, the 33-year old has worked to oversee all areas of the club, including representing Motherwell at the SPFL, the Scottish FA and the European Club Association (ECA).
As discussions on another ownership model continue apace, the Board were keen to ensure Alan’s knowledge and experience of the club and contacts in the game were retained.
He will take his seat on the Board, reporting directly to the Chairman and fellow Directors.
Chairman Jim McMahon said: “I am delighted that Alan has agreed to take up the post of Chief Operating Officer.
“I have worked with him for a number of years now and no one is more dedicated to the long-term future of this club.
“He will be an excellent addition to the Board of Motherwell Football Club.”

Alan, who also sits on the Board of the Community Trust, added: “We’ve had a transitional two years at the club, which although has been a challenge, has been very enjoyable.
“The club is set to undergo some more positive changes, with newly re-organised staffing structure and fresh ideas.
“We have lots to do and improve on, but there is also a lot to be positive about. We have a terrific Community Trust, a flourishing Academy system and solid foundation to build on after a fifth-placed finish last term.
“On the park, Mark is working hard to put our squad together ahead of the 2016/17 season, together with some of our emerging talent from Stephen Craigan’s Cup winning Under 20s squad.
“I look forward to serving on the Board and working closely with the Chairman and fellow Directors over the months and years ahead.”
