Congratulations Stephen Robinson!

The Well Society would like to take this opportunity of congratulating Stephen Robinson on his successful appointment as Manager of our Club.

Over forty candidates applied and from this, five were shortlisted and asked to attend for interview.

The interviews were conducted by panel and consisted of the following people:

■ Alan Burrows, Chief Operating Officer

■ Douglas Dickie and Gavin Whitefield representing both The Well Society Board and Supervisory Board.

■ Derek Weir

Derek was invited to join the panel due to his experience in the managerial interview process as past Director and previous Acting Chairman.

From the shortlist of five, three candidates were interviewed, all three candidates interviewed well, however the panel’s decision was unanimous, and their recommendation was taken to the Executive Board to be ratified.

Stephen’s values, skills and attributes exactly matched the criteria the panel had laid down.

It was imperative that our vision for the Club (short, medium and long term) was addressed and Stephen discussed at length his thoughts and plans in how to achieve this.

As you would expect Stephen’s experience at both Club and International Level will be invaluable and he also holds his Coaching Pro Licence. He is fully supportive of continuing our tradition in developing our young players.

Stephen recognises and fully supports the Club’s Fan Ownership status and business model and is keen to develop closer ties with The Well Society, it’s members and fans.

In closing, we ask that everyone gets behind Stephen and our team at Fir Park
