Hibernian Appoint Leeann Dempster As Chief Executive

Tue 29th Apr 2014 | Football Club Management

The Board of Hibernian FC have confirmed the appointment of Leeann Dempster as Chief Executive.

Leeann joins from Motherwell FC and takes up her position with Hibernian with effect from 1 June 2014.

Hibernian Chairman, Rod Petrie said of Leeann’s appointment, "We are delighted that Leeann is joining Hibernian.

“I am certain she will be a tremendously important 'signing' and will provide the daily leadership needed next season to help achieve the Board's plans and meet the aspirations of supporters.

"Leeann is an outstanding football leader with a proven track record. In addition to a desire for sporting success, I know from our numerous discussions that there is a shared belief in the direction of travel towards increased involvement of supporters and greater community engagement."

Rod Petrie will stand down as interim Chief Executive on Leeann's appointment but continues in his role as non-executive Chairman.

Leeann added, "I believe that to succeed in a sustainable way in the long term we need to grow club resources, re-engage lapsed supporters and strengthen the club collectively.

“As a big city club, Hibernian has a fantastic opportunity to build on the great physical assets and grow attendances through increased engagement and success on the pitch. I am looking forward to the challenge.

"There are a number of initiatives that we will be able to announce to supporters in due course and that will show we want to meet the shared ambitions of supporters. We want a vision that everyone can buy into so they can play their part in the future of our club."

Leeann's appointment is the first major step on the road to delivering a vision developed in collaboration between club management and supporters through the Let's Work Together project.

The vision seeks to create a virtuous cycle through three main drivers - developing the Club; developing players; and success on the pitch. The ultimate aim is to create a Club which will be competitive in every match and where winning becomes a habit, but it is done so with the club operating in a sustainable way.
