The mcfcgeeks team has done a huge amount in the last year and I’m delighted to announce that we’ve capped that off by appointing a new Head of Digital, Russell Stopford.
Don’t we already have a Head of Digital? Well, over the last year you might have picked up that I’ve been the interim Head of Digital. I’ve got a family in London and we thought it was important to have someone Manchester-based, so I happily filled the role till we could find the right person – and now we have. Russell has an excellent pedigree and I’m sure will be posting here soon.
I’m delighted to say that I’m staying involved with the club in a roving role looking at digital business development, new products and innovation.
The progress over the last year has been great, but if I know Russell, then 2012 will be even better than 2011.
To all those who tweeted, emailed and even wrote in to me over the last 12 months, thanks for making it a fantastic year.
