FC welcome Hull-born trio onto board of directors [Hull Daily Mail (England)]
(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HULL FC have doubled the size of their board of directors after promoting three Hull-born staff members.
Operations and Retail Director Lee Jenkinson, Commercial Director Sarah McAllister and Community Director Richard Munson now make up half of the club's executive board alongside owner Adam Pearson, Chief Operating Officer Tony Sutton and Head of Communications, Media and Marketing James Clark.
The move comes with Pearson eager to take Hull back to their local roots having already appointed coaching duo Lee Radford and Andy Last to oversee team affairs.
Lee, Sarah and Richard are all highly respected people within the club and I'm extremely pleased to welcome them onto the board of directors, said Sutton.
They have been integral to the continued success of the off- field operation at Hull FC and their appointment as directors of the club is a reward for their hard work over recent years and the desire which all three of them share to help Hull FC establish itself as a leading force within Super League.
Their appointment will help the club go from strength to strength during a very important period for everybody associated with the Black and Whites.
Jenkinson, 27, joined the club as a part-time shop assistant aged 16 before progressing to become head of retail.
Munson joined the Black and Whites in 2012 following previous roles in sports development at East Riding Council and the Humber Sports Partnership, and is responsible for the creation of the FC Learning Centre, as well as overseeing the Hull FC Foundation. Having started in the hotel business, McAllister boasted a prominent role within EMC, the catering company formerly based at the KC Stadium, rising to the role of Group Sales Manager and overseeing the sales teams at a dozen stadiums across the country. She arrived back in Hull as Head of Commercial activities in 2011.
