Spennymoor Town have made two changes to their board structure, with former Moors centre-back Paul Johnson joining as Financial Director, and Adam Brown as Marketing and Communications Director.
They complete a four-person board alongside Debra Swinburn, who has autonomy over all Legal and Compliance matters, and Tony Wilson, Managing Director.
The new pair replace Ian Walker and David Mills, who have been with the club for the last 12 months as directors. They helped build the club’s management team and lay solid foundations ahead of this season, including work on the ground developments currently taking place.
Brad Groves, Chief Executive, said: “I’m delighted with these two appointments, both of whom work with me at GAS.
“This allows strategic and tactical decisions to be made on an almost instant basis, which is what the club currently needs with the pace it is improving both on and off the field.”
Johnson played two seasons at the heart of the Moors defence from 2014 to 2016 and has worked at Great Annual Savings Group (GAS) since the start of this period as a Management Accountant. He has also been working off the pitch for Spennymoor during this time, running the club’s financial processes for the last five years.
Brown has been with Spennymoor for three years as Head of Media and PR after initially working on the social media during the 2013 FA Vase-winning season. He has overseen improvements in the club’s relationships with the North East media, the club’s owned media channels and year-on-year improvements in season ticket sales and sponsorship. He has worked with Johnson and Groves at GAS for three-and-a-half years as Marketing and eCommerce Manager.
