HULL CONFIRM DEPARTURE OF EXECUTIVES

By Laura Smith | 11/10/2011

Hull FC have announced that two Executives will be leaving the club, including Chief Executive James Rule.

The Black and Whites have confirmed his resignation bringing to an end a seven-year tenure at the KC Stadium, in which five years were served as CEO.

In an official statement, James Rule commented, “After seven years at Hull FC, I have decided to move on and pursue the next chapter of my professional career.

“I leave with wonderful memories having met and worked with a number of great people during my time here.

“Hull FC is a fantastic club, and I am proud to have made a contribution to its growth.

“I wish the players, coaches, staff and fans the very best of luck for next season and the future."

Meanwhile, Hull FC’s Community Executive Jon Flatman is also set to leave the club ahead of taking up a new position within the city.

Speaking about the departure of both members of staff, Hull FC owner Adam Pearson said, “James Rule leaves the club with all our best wishes and thanks for the role he has played in leading Hull FC over the last five years as CEO.

“I am sure the leadership experience he has gained in his seven years as a Director will stand him in good stead for his new business challenges and the opportunities that now lie ahead.”

He continued, “Our best wishes also go to Jon Flatman for all his hard work and commitment over the last five years, particularly for his efforts in the community, as he looks to take up a new business role in a months time.

“Both James and Jon have played key roles in the running of a club under very tight budget constraints set by the previous board and are to be congratulated on their achievements and commitment to Hull FC.”

It means a restructure of the club’s senior management team will now take place with Finance Director Tony Sutton and Head of Media James Clark handed new roles with immediate effect.

Pearson explained, “The club will now be run by Tony Sutton on the business and administration side as Chief Operating Officer, whilst Shaun McRae will continue to handle all rugby affairs as Director of Rugby.

“They’ll also be accompanied by James Clark who will now become our Head of Communications, Media and Marketing at the club and we wish all three all the best in their future roles.”

He added, “We are entering an exciting new era at the club with a new look management structure in our administration department and a refreshed coaching structure within our performance areas, all focused on achieving the success this club deserves.

“With at least seven exciting signings already confirmed for the new season we are confident that a new era of a winning brand of rugby league will dawn at the KC next season and we look forward to the future with plenty of enthusiasm.

“We need you, the supporters, to get right behind us once again this season, renew your passes and support the new Hull FC with all your usual undying commitment and passion.”
