Bury Town Ring Boardroom Changes With New CEO

Tue 25th Nov 2014 | Football Club Management

Bury Town have announced the appointment of Michelle Banfield-Curran as the club’s new Chief Executive Officer as of Jan 2nd 2015.

Michelle has been working as the club’s Commercial Manager this season but with her background in leisure management and sports development it became apparent she could benefit the club on a much wider scale.

As CEO, Michelle will oversee all aspects of the club off the pitch but will also work with Manager, Ben Chenery to ensure he has the best tools at his disposal to deliver on the pitch as well.

There have also been changes at Boardroom level. Joining the club are Ian Cowie and Garry Barker, both of whom take up their positions this week.

 Ian will become the club’s new Finance Director and will take over the management of the club’s accounts. He will also be Company Secretary, responsible for the administration of the Limited Company. 

Garry Barker will become the new Development Director, and be responsible for the club’s development in youth football.

Garry is currently secretary of Bury Town Youth, a position he will retain, and  will also work to integrate the youth section with the main club, a process that has been ongoing for the past couple of years.
