Oldham Athletic are delighted to announce Richard Taylor as an addition to the Board of Directors.
Richard joins the Oldham Athletic board with a wealth of experience in professional sport and business behind him.
He has worked at a senior level with a number of professional football clubs, world and national governing bodies and at major global sporting events.
He has a strong focus on business and strategic development, as well as commercial and project management.
Richard has also worked for Deloitte's sports business group and was a main author of their authoritative and industry leading publications, The Annual Review of Football Finance and Football Money League.
Richard is keen to use his vast expertise in sports business at Oldham Athletic, taking an active 'hands-on' role to help boost the club's commercial and matchday revenues.
Richard has recently worked as a Director of a leading London law firm, overseeing revenue growth of 350% in 18 months, establishing the firm as the leader in its sector and as one of the fastest growing companies in the country.
Richard has also worked more broadly in management, overseeing a number of large scale commercial and strategic projects with values over £300m. He has managed strategic projects with global implications, as well as focusing on business development for a number of large private companies.
Richard has been an Oldham Athletic fan all his life and grew up in the town before graduating from the University of Oxford. He also worked for the club just under a decade ago and cannot wait to get started.
He said: "I am delighted to be appointed as a Director of the club I have supported the club all of my life.
"Having spent the last ten years working in the professional sport industry, some of it at the very highest levels, I am confident that I can add a lot to the shaping of a very successful future for the club.
"With the new stand heading towards completion and the manager building a very competitive squad, this season might well be the best we've had for a long time."
