Corby Town have announced the appointment of Chris Rivett to the board of directors.
Rivett, 32, is the managing director of Northampton-based Final Third Sports Media and previously worked for Northampton Town and Luton Town before setting up his own media company in 2005.
On his appointment, Acting Chairman David Mallinger explained: “We're delighted that Chris has accepted our offer to join the board. Graham and I have known Chris for over a decade and his experience and contacts will be of great benefit to the club.
"Through his business and the work they do for the Football League and the Professional Game Match Officials he is in daily contact with the offices of the Football League and the Premier League and their member clubs. We aspire to have as professional set-up at Corby as we can within our budget and the knowledge he has is essential to us achieving that.
"Chris and his team at Final Third have been working diligently in the background on a number of projects in the last six months and we are delighted with what he has contributed to the club in that short space of time. His appointment takes us to a board of five directors and Chris will specifically take on responsibility for the club's media and communications operation within that set-up.”
"It is a privilege to be invited to join the board of the football club,” Rivett commented. “Since the turn of the year I have seen firsthand how determined everyone associated with the club is to take Corby Town forward and I very much look forward to being part of the team.”
