So KL now have a CEO. :welcome: he spoke briefly on Radio Norfolk this morning but didn't really say any more than what has already been published, also dodged the fulltime/part time question

Welcome!
Let's hope he's got a thick skin and some building skills there's plenty of bridges that need to be rebuilt

Maybe working on a commission basis.  I guess it matters not how he is remunerated as long as he brings the cash needed to help the Club.   Without decent commercial income the burden of funding falls on the fans and the owner.   BP being successful means the fans pay less on admission and the Chairman does not have to find huge sums.

Perhaps it's the one man band that needs restructuring.

I think this is a possibility and as you say, there's nothing wrong with it if it brings the money into the Club.

Another option is that we will see another Company formed e.g. KLFC Commercial Ltd, which BP will have an interest in.

Time will tell.

He has been around a bit - I wonder how long he will stay?

Is he any relation to Albert.  Now that would put a different slant on things

Uncle Albert. Do you think he's married to Auntie Doris?

Has the Chairman put his neck on the line for this one?

I wonder if Barry will be the guest on SCís next podcast?  Must be due a new one.  It must be getting on for two months since the last one.

SC does like to get a regular one out there. :scarf:

Positive noises from BP on Twitter:

"I am looking forward to meeting all fans and supporters at an Open Meeting in early June, more details to follow.
Looking forward to working with you all."

Hopefully he gets a good turnout and becomes the start of a new relationship between club and the fanbase as a whole
