Crawley Town Chief Executive To Step Down

Tue 20th Nov 2012 | Football Club Management

Crawley Town FC, Chief Executive Alan Williams has decided to step down from his position at the end of this season.

Williams, who has served as Chief Executive for the last three years will remain on the board and will oversee the recruitment of his successor.

Speaking of his decision, Williams told the club’s official website: “I feel it is time for me to step down and make way for someone else with a fresh perspective and new ideas to take the club to the next level.

“I will continue to be a director of the football club and the Board have tasked me with the responsibility of finding my successor. I look forward to working with them to create a seamless transition moving forward.

“When I look back at my three years in the role I do so with immense pride in what I have helped us to achieve.

Crawley were promoted to League One this season, following promotion to League Two the previous season, something which Williams is proud of: “With the support of our shareholders and sponsors, we have gone from a non-league club to one challenging for the play-offs in League One while the Broadfield Stadium has been transformed along with the match day experience.

“We have a small but hardworking back-office team who have helped us achieve so much, of whom I am immensely proud. I have made many friendships with people who are part of Crawley Town FC including, of course, many of our wonderful supporters that I hope will endure for a long time.

“There have been some fantastic highlights: the trip to Old Trafford and two promotions stand out but I am also proud of what we have achieved off the pitch to make Crawley Town FC a well respected and admired member of The Football League.”

Co-owner Susan Carter said: “It was with great reluctance that the Board accepted Alan’s decision to step down at the end of the season.

“Alan has played a major part in the transformation of the football club over the last three years. His input, enthusiasm and dedication is recognised and appreciated by everyone. Alan has been instrumental in building a successful ‘team’ off the field, who are equally dedicated to the success of Crawley Town.

“We are extremely pleased Alan is going to remain on the Board and will help us find his replacement. I’m sure all our supporters will join me and my fellow directors and shareholders in thanking Alan for the part he has played in the development of Crawley Town FC since he came to the club.”
