The Club can confirm that Levi Gill has informed the Board of his decision to stand down from the role of Chief Executive.
Levi was appointed in the newly formed position in July 2020 and oversaw the Club’s transition from National League champions to members of the EFL amidst the challenges of a global pandemic.
Alisha Henry has now been confirmed as the Club’s new General Manager, and Levi will remain in his role until the end of January to ensure a smooth handover.
“On behalf of myself and the Board, I would like to thank Levi for all his hard work over the past 18 months,” said Chairman, Paul Hornby.
“In what has been an unconventional period with COVID-19 and getting us up to speed quickly with all the EFL requirements, it’s certainly been a challenging environment.
“However, we’re now in a stable position with a good organisational structure and people running the Club, for which Levi deserves huge credit.
“From a personal point of view, Levi was the first Supporters’ Trust representative, and he really helped the process of making this structure work by managing expectations on both sides.
“He was a great support to me in this position; therefore, we shouldn’t forget his role in shaping the Barrow AFC we have today.
“We all wish him the very best for the next steps in his career and I am sure that he will be no stranger to the Club in the future.”
The Club will not currently be taking any applications for the role of Chief Executive but will look to review the overall situation at the end of the season.
We can also confirm that Kelly Moxham will take interim charge of the Club’s sponsorship and hospitality, while Aaron Archer has begun work with The Bluebirds under the government’s Kick Start scheme and we wish them both good luck in their new roles.
