My job is to ensure we have a successful and solid business platform on which to base commercial partnerships that will ensure the long term health and growth of the game."
John Crowther, Chief Executive, said: "We have undergone a radical modernisation of our management structure over the past 12 months, including the formation of an executive management group which will be accountable for the successful delivery of our business plan. Paul will play a key role within this group and his expertise will give us the edge we need to capitalise on the type of commercial opportunities that we know are out there."
