Carolyn Still takes CEO role at Mansfield Town

Tue 13th Sep 2011 | Football Club Management

Mansfield Town have announced the appointment of Carolyn Still as their new Chief Executive Officer.

Ms Still has succeeded Steve Barker, who has accepted a new position within One Call Group, Chairman John Radford's company.

At 29-years-old, Ms Still becomes the youngest in the country to take up such a role in football.

A politics graduate from the University of Durham, Ms Still brings a wealth of experience to her new position developed through the fashion industry where she worked alongside the Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer in two of the world's largest luxury goods companies, Bulgari SpA and Gucci Group.

Speaking to mansfieldtown.net, Ms Still said: "It's a great privilege for me to be offered the chance to lead this football club.

"I intend to add vibrancy and fresh ideas to our approach off the field.

"Having attended numerous fundraising events, organised by the club's supporters groups, I am well aware of the passion and enthusiasm that the fans have to see the Stags succeed.

"I want to wake sleeping fans with a lot of different initiatives by liaising with them and finding what they want.

"Much work has been done to develop relationships with key businesses in and around the area, and we must continue to work hard to ensure that our off-the-field commercial activity increases in an attempt to make the club self-sustainable.

"The club must continue to forge close relationships with the local community, businesses and supporters and it will be my job to ensure that these are strengthened to maximise both our revenue and our position in the local community.

"'We have a fantastic team both on and off the field and I am pleased to accept this role during a time when there appears to be a real buzz around the place," she added.
