Reds Strengthen Off-The-Field Team.

1 August 2016

Barnsley Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Ian Leech as the Club’s new Commercial Manager as we prepare for our return to the Sky Bet Championship.

Ian joins the Club from South Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday, where he spent 12 successful years working as their Corporate Sales Manager.

Ian has been the driving force behind substantial growth commercially for the Owls and is now looking forward to bringing more success off-the-field here at Oakwell. Ian will be pivotal in maintaining relationships with our valued Club partners whilst also looking to develop new opportunities with other companies and organisations.

On joining the Reds, Ian commented "This is a forward thinking Club with a very bright future and I’m really excited to get going and continuing what has been a successful period both on and off-the-field. I’ve had my first week at Oakwell this week and there is a great atmosphere around the place; it’s an extremely positive environment at the moment and it bodes well for the season ahead. I’m looking forward to getting out there and meeting the fans and Club Partners over the coming weeks!”

On securing Ian Leech as the Club’s new Commercial Manager, Reds Acting Chief Executive Linton Brown commented “I’m delighted to have Ian on board - he represents a great addition to our team here at Oakwell. To have someone of his calibre and experience working behind the scenes at the Club is fantastic and we’ve already spoken about some really exciting commercial opportunities off-the-field.”

On behalf of everyone at Barnsley Football Club we would like to welcome Ian to Oakwell and wish him well in his new role.
