Mr Michael Charlesworth on behalf of the Central Coast Mariners can today advise that former West Ham United FC & Portsmouth FC Chief Executive Officer, Mr Peter Storrie, has joined the Club as an Associate Director.
Initially, Storrie will be on the Central Coast from early February to mid March. During this time he will review the Club’s structures and lead a marketing and commercial campaign to increase Club revenues.
Storrie will also engage with key local stakeholders as the Mariners look to strengthen its ties to the community, and build on the foundations currently in place.
“Peter has a wealth of experience that we’ll be calling on as we continue our drive towards building a sustainable model that can keep the Club based on the Central Coast,” Mr Charlesworth said.
Speaking from the United Kingdom, Storrie – who has also previously worked for Southend United and Notts County – said that he is excited to be linking with the Mariners and looks forward to making a contribution to the Hyundai A-League.
“I am delighted to help anywhere I can with the Club and hope that having worked in football for over 25 years my experience will help me to help take the Club forward,” Storrie said.
“This is an exciting challenge for me in a country that I have always called my second home. My objective is to help the Club increase its bonds to the community and assist in enhancing Club revenues.”
“I look forward to meeting all parties that wish to unite and get behind the Mariners, and working with the current management and staff at the Club. As one we can make the Mariners a success on and off the field,” he said.
