Gateshead have appointed Rachel Divers as the club’s new commercial manager.
The club say Divers ‘will be taking the lead on the club’s commercial duties, forging links with the club’s loyal sponsors whilst utilising her experience to build relationships within the town and surrounding areas in what is an expansive network of businesses.’
She arrives with a vast amount of experience in the commercial industry, and most recently held the position of head of commercial sales at Sunderland.
She is currently a director at Revive Events, in addition to holding a consultancy role with the Bradley Lowery Foundation.
“It’s a real honour and an exciting opportunity and one that I am relishing,” Divers told gateshead-fc.com. “It will be a challenge and I am under no illusions as I’m fully aware how close this club came to going out of existence 12 months ago.”
“Saying that, I am well prepared and ready to help move the club forward.”
