Latics appoint new CEO

Date published: 10 September 2020

Oldham Athletic have appointed a new Chief Executive Officer.

Ex-CEO of Bury FC, Karl Evans, will be taking on the role where he'll be in charge of the day-to-day working at the club and managing staff. 

He's previously worked as a Sports Consultant working with Liverpool and Salford City and has also spent over 25 years with Manchester United so he's bringing a lot of experience with him.

It comes after the news that Natalie Atkinson had been let go as Managing Director. 

Karl said: "I'm delighted to be a part of Oldham Athletic. How we conduct ourselves as a club is extremely important and I am committed on making sure as a team we continue to make a positive impact in the town.

"With my consultancy work at a number of different clubs now I have helped them improve in different areas, with this opportunity allowing me to do that once more."

He added: "I will always take into account the fans opinions as well as being open and honest. I know there's still a lot of work to do, but I am committed to help change things for the better."
