Cathy Jamieson to remain as non-executive director at club

Kilmarnock Football Club can confirm that Cathy Jamieson will remain as a non-Executive Director at the club following her six year tenure as the Killie Trust Director.

Cathy will embark on a new role with the club as a non-executive position on the board, where her main remit will be supporting the work of the club’s official charity, Killie Community, as Chair of Trustee Board. Cathy will also continue to lead on the club’s child protection and wellbeing strategy, a crucial role as we aim to expand both our boys and girls academies.

On her new role, Cathy said: “My role ends as the Trust’s director, but I am delighted that the club has asked me to be on the board as a non-executive director.

“The Killie Community role is something that’s really exciting, and very close to my heart. We’ve seen that grow from the days when it started with Paul Di Giacomo as the community engagement manager, to now having Jordan Allison as the charity manager and a rebrand from Kilmarnock Community Sports Trust to Killie Community, which better reflects the aims of charity.

“Thanks to Billy Bowie, we now have the Killie Community Hub in Rugby Road, plus plans for the community pitches behind the Moffat Stand which is a great base to build from. I’ll be very much focused on helping the charity develop, and increasing its reach, in collaboration with the club. I’ve been doing some of that already but it wasn’t specifically my role so I am delighted that I’ll have the time to focus in on that.”

Phyllis Carroll, Managing Director added: “Both Billy and I are delighted that Cathy has agreed to come on board to help steer Killie Community on the path to becoming one of the area’s largest charities. The work that they do could only benefit from Cathy’s charitable sector knowledge and we look forward to working with her as plans for Killie Community flourish over the coming months.”

Cathy will embark on her new role from 1st June 2024 and we will hear more about the exciting plans for Killie Community in due course.
