Crystal Palace appoint new Head of Media
Mon 13th Jun 2016 | Marketing & PR
Crystal Palace Football Club have announced the appointment of Joanne Budd as Head of PR and Media Relations.
Joanne is currently Head of Media Operations at The Football Association, where she has worked on the organisation’s public-facing communications for over two decades. She joins Palace in August ahead of the new Premier League season, after this summer’s European Championships in France, where she is currently managing media operations for Roy Hodgson and the England squad.
During her career at The Football Association Joanne has managed media and PR activity around the England senior men’s team for the last ten World Cups and European Championships, the re-opening of Wembley Stadium, UEFA Champions League Finals and the FA’s 150th anniversary.
Chairman Steve Parish is looking forward to welcoming Joanne to CPFC. “Joanne has a wealth of experience at the top level of the game and she will be a tremendous addition to the team," he said.
This appointment is a return to the club for Joanne, who worked for six years under previous managers, Steve Coppell and Alan Smith, in the late 1980s and early 1990s when the team was promoted to the top-flight, appeared in an FA Cup Final at Wembley and won the Zenith Data Systems Cup.
Commenting on her appointment, Joanne said, “I am really looking forward to returning to Palace and the opportunity of working in the Premier League. I’m sure there are going to be some great times ahead for the club.”
