Ross County Football Club are delighted to welcome Emily Wilson to the club as the new General Manager (GM). Wilson brings a wealth of solid financial and commercial experience with her to the Club having worked closely with Chairman, Roy MacGregor, for the past four years in a Corporate role at Global Energy Group.
Wilson will take overall responsibility for the day-to-day running at the Global Energy Stadium, having spent the past 6 months working within the Club consulting on a range of matters including the recent changes to season ticket pricing.
Speaking about the appointment, Chairman, Roy MacGregor, said: "We are delighted that Emily has agreed to join the Club as General Manager. It's a role we have been looking to fill for a while now and, with Emily's excellent financial and commercial background - as well as a passion for football and hands-on experience consulting at the Club during the last six months - I think she is the ideal candidate.
"The modern club is as much a business as a football club," added MacGregor. "Emily will help grow the commercial side of the club - and in that I include matchdays but also the non-football side of the business which sees us welcome corporate and other groups year-round to use our fantastic conferencing and meeting facilities.
“Further, being local and a Staggie, I think Emily has shown with her input into the new season ticket pricing that she will also be an advocate for the supporter too, which is central to Ross County Football Club."
Commenting on her appointment, Wilson said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of my new role with the club. I have been consulting with the club for the last six months so it’s great to finally join on a full-time basis ahead of the club’s sixth consecutive season in the Ladbrokes Premiership.
“We have just introduced some really forward-thinking initiatives with season tickets as well as upgrading our hospitality facilities, meaning they rival anything else in the league. But there are many more exciting plans for the coming season that I’m looking forward to delivering.”
Anyone wishing to get in touch with Emily can do so by either visiting the football club, by calling 01349 860860 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
