Bath City have announced the appointment of the club’s new full-time general manager, Carole Banwell, who will start in her role at the beginning of April, charged with developing new revenues and building relationships across the city.
With a professional background in accounting, commerce and law, Carole has volunteered at City for eighteen months running the club shop, before coming through an extensive recruitment process to take on this new role.
The position will be pivotal in working for the new Board, Society, fans and investors new and old to implement the plans to get the club back on a sound financial footing and to deepen the Club’s engagement with the whole community.
Looking forward to taking up her post, Carole commented: “For too long the football club has been a little bit ‘below the radar’ here in Bath. The success of the supporter ownership bid has brought a new vision and a fresh energy and we are determined to create a vibrant and sustainable club which sits at the heart of the local community – and which from there reconnects with the rest of the city. I’m so excited to be involved in this significant change and to be helping to bring community-focused football, and Bath City FC, out of the shadows.”
The appointment follows the announcement of the club AGM on Tuesday, 28th March which should pave the way for the issue of 300,000 new shares to the Supporters Society and in turn the Society’s majority ownership of the club.
