Geoff Durbin appointed COO at Gigg Lane
The Club is delighted to confirm that they have secured the services of Geoff Durbin as the Club’s new Chief Operating Officer.
Geoff has over 30 years of working within the North West business and sporting communities and brings with him a wealth of experience. He has worked for two of the most iconic names in sport in this region - Manchester City where he was Commercial Manager and, up until earlier this year, Lancashire County Cricket Club.
Geoff will be responsible for the day to day operations of the Club as well as over seeing the development of the Commercial team.
Glenn Thomas CEO said of the appointment:
“To secure the services of someone with Geoff’s calibre is a real coup for this Club as it allows us to continue with the development of the infrastructure behind the scenes and assist us in developing the off field activities.
The first time we met with Geoff, his enthusiasm for the role was obvious and he will be a great asset to the Club in moving forward. I look forward to working with him and I am sure with his wealth of contacts the doors he will open will only benefit the Club and help it move to the next level within its development process.”
