Candidate’s Statement – Simon Rhodes
The stability that the Trust has brought to the club through dedication, hard work and sheer bloody mindedness is to be applauded, admired and appreciated. During the last 8 months, I’ve been lucky to have worked alongside this team as a Co-opted member on the revenue generation team, I’m now at a stage where I want to have a bigger impact and bring my skills and knowledge to work to help take us to the next level on and as importantly off the field.
I have been in sales roles for over 25 years and for the last 15 been a Commercial Director for a global FTSE 250 Business, these roles have given me a wealth of extensive and real knowledge in terms of revenue generation, organisational growth and adapting business structures to changing markets, all these skills I believe would bring a practical benefit to the Trust and the club.
Widely connected within the local business world, I will seek to build on these connections and turn them into revenue opportunities to benefit both the Trust and the Club and raise our profile within our community. I’m direct, honest and open minded. I guarantee I will challenge decisions and mind sets if elected to make sure the Trust and the Club we love comes first.
