Wycombe Wanderers Appoint New Head Of Commercial Activities

Wed 15th Jul 2015 | Football Club Management

Wycombe Wanderers have appointed Damian Irvine as the new Head of Commercial Activities of the football club.

Damian will take overall responsibility for all sales, ticketing, sponsorship and hospitality opportunities, working with the existing commercial team to help generate revenue by building and maintaining relationships with supporters, partners and sponsors.

The Australian achieved great success in his homeland in both sporting and non-sporting environments before arriving in the UK to take on the role as Commercial Director at Notts County, creating an award-winning marketing campaign, attracting prestigious sponsorship deals to the club and achieving a significant growth in revenue and season ticket sales.

Wanderers Chairman, Andrew Howard, said: "Damian's appointment is a very significant move for the club and I'd say it's one of the most important signings we've made - on or off the field - in recent times.

"His experience in football and sport previously means he has a proven track record and he'll bring fresh ideas and energy to the team.

"Over the past year we have worked hard on achieving survival and creating the platform for stability and growth for Wycombe Wanderers. Damian's arrival is part of a restructuring of our staff which will allow us to move towards the next level, and he becomes one of five key managers who will drive the day-to-day operation of the club.

"We are looking to recruit a Food and Beverage Manager who will be the final piece in the jigsaw and I'm excited about the potential success that our teams on and off the pitch can achieve."

Speaking on his appointment, Damian, added: "Having spent some time at the club and meeting the chairman Andrew, his manager Gareth, and a number of the front office team, I’m extremely impressed with Wycombe Wanderers' structure, professionalism and ambition.

“The sincerity of the club in striving for success and sustainability resonates strongly with my principles and experiences.

"I’ve enjoyed and cherished fantastic relationships with supporters in my previous roles, who are the fundamentally owners and keepers of a club's brand and soul.

“The opportunity to work for a truly supporter owned club has been a long held wish of mine and I look forward to working with the strong off-field team to deliver optimal results and success for the Trust in the future."

Damian will begin his new role on Monday 20th July.
