Barrow AFC are pleased to announce the appointment of Levi Gill as the club’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Levi will work in collaboration with the Board of Directors and be responsible for all administrative and commercial activities at the Club.
Speaking on the appointment, Club Chairman Paul Hornby said, “Levi has made a real impression on the owners during his time representing the Bluebirds Trust on the Club Board. We knew that a return to the Football League would require a more full-time, professional approach to the Club’s off-field operations and we were always keen to appoint locally if possible. In Levi we are delighted to have somebody who knows the Club and can hit the ground running as we continue through a busy period for Barrow AFC.”
Levi added: “I’m obviously incredibly honoured that the Board have put their faith in me to take up this role. Last season exceeded all of our expectations and we now enter our first League Two campaign with a squad and a manager that we feel are both ‘EFL ready’. My job is to ensure that off-field we can reach that same level. There are countless new requirements set for our club by the EFL and I’m looking forward to ensuring that we meet these as well as delivering the best possible experience for our staff, our commercial partners and most importantly our supporters.”
Levi will formally join the Club next month, and will spend the next two weeks transitioning into the new role and coordinating the Club’s ongoing process of re-opening as COVID-19 restrictions ease. As part of the transition, Levi will resign from his role as the Bluebirds Trust Director effective from 24th July.
