Directorate Change

 

 

Goals Soccer Centres plc, a leading operator of outdoor small-sided soccer centres with 49 sites, including three in California, USA, is pleased to announce it has appointed Jacqueline Ann Ronson ("Jackie"), as Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

 

Jackie (aged 45) is currently the Digital, CRM & Insights Director at EE, part of the BT Group plc. As a well-respected business leader and digital specialist, she brings a wealth of experience in consumer-facing industries to the Group, which will be significantly important as the Group seeks to improve its customer data and digital functions. Jackie will Chair the Group's Remuneration Committee as part of her new role. She has previously held senior roles at Barclays, Close Brothers and Prudential and served as a Non-Executive Director at Radian Group Ltd for seven years.

"We are pleased to announce that Jackie is joining the Board as Scott's replacement. Jackie is a talented, well respected senior executive who will bring extensive consumer-facing and technology experience to the role of Non-Executive Director.

 

"Jackie will work with us to shape the business as we continue with our investment-led modernisation strategy.

 

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Scott for his contribution and counsel during his time with Goals and I wish him every success in his full-time executive role at the LTA."
