Dom McKay’s last free hour

200

Our new CEO Dom McKay will be employed as an executive director from 19th April, working with Peter Lawwell until the latter retires from the top job on 30 June.  McKay will already be involved in considerations around the appointment of a new manager but being released from his role with Scottish Rugby on 16 April will give him time to acclimatise to the vast range of responsibilities the Celtic CEO has.

Celtic is an industry in itself.  It has a print, digital and broadcast media division, online and on-premises retail outlets.  Its principle property is a substantial and complex events venue, which costs in excess of seven figures per annum to maintain.  Income streams include ticket sales, commercial partnerships, equipment sponsorship deals and prize money from domestic and European competition.

It operates restaurants and is licenced to serve alcohol from several bars.  The club employ hundreds of staff, have financial reporting duties consistent with their listing and support the work of the Celtic FC Foundation.  He can succeed with all of this and still fail on the bounce of a ball.

McKay will soon learn demands are made on him from various pressure groups.  Fans, media (old and new) preeminent staff and, of course, a major shareholder, all of whom he will want to satisfy, all of whom he will need to stand firm against, from time to time.  I hope he spends the next two weeks doing as little as possible, because after 19th April, he will never have another free hour.

    it’s amazing the things we used to take for granted.

     

     

    In the big picture, socialising must come after education, however I’m really looking forward to going to the game early morning followed by a good musical sesh.

     

     

    With luck I’ll see the Plainsmen in the flesh.

     

     

    Cheers and HH.

    He needs to have some sort of official capacity at the club to still be involved at UEFA, which UEFA want to happen, por cierto.

    would youà have any number on slow down of natural rate.

     

     

    by that i mean the rate declining due to seasons changing.

     

    —–

     

    I would expect the numbers will diminish allied with easing of restrictions right up to the 6th of May, then dramatically increase thereafter with new controlling measures.

     

     

    hahahaha do you think she will quell the paranoid need for the union as the only vehicle to power?

    Let’s err on the side of caution and book those beer gardens before the pesky election.

     

     

    ( Just in case )

    The move towards hermetically sealed homes and buildings relying on artificial ventilation might have to be reconsidered, given the level of airborne transmission.

    You are absolutely right Ernie – a lot to be said for open windows and fresh air.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Especially if you have the misfortune to visit WeeBGFC’s bedroom!

    The lead article is maybe a reason we should have had a DoF in place years ago.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    While I’m for Howe I’m not sure him bringing in his own “DoF” is the long term approach the club should be pursuing. For a start it sounds like his man is a glorified head scout rather than a proper DoF and the whole point in having a DoF is that he transcends the manager/first team coach so that in years to come the club maintains the same strategy and ethos

     

     

    Represented at Board Level.it needs that gravitas imo.
