The Bulls are delighted to announce that Ed Airey will be joining our board with a particular focus on sponsor engagement and fan experience. Ed's current role is as Employee Experience Director at National Express (having performed similar roles across industries in the past) and sits on the advisory board for Switch the Play, a charity specialising on helping athlete transition out of the world of sport. His passion lies in creating experiences that have people at their heart.
Ed stated “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the board at AFC Mansfield. Having known Spencer for a few years now, I know his ethos when it comes to developing footballers into better players and well-rounded people and been deeply impressed by the progress NEFA has made. As a believer that there is too much wastage in many of our sports with too many people discarded too early, I am excited and massively passionate about what AFC Mansfield are focussed on doing"
Spencer stated “Ed has had a fantastic career to date and is a real people developer. He is passionate about delivering a high-level experience to colleagues and stakeholders. Ed has great knowledge from his role at Switch the Play on how we must make the players the heart of everything we do, both whilst playing and when they have retired from the game. This knowledge will be valuable as we build our club”
Our fifth appointment will be announced at 6p.m tomorrow.
