Glentoran Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Wallace as Commercial Manager.
Simon, from East Belfast and a lifelong Glenman, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role, having enjoyed a successful career in sports sponsorship, including 11 years as the founding Commercial Manager for Ulster Rugby. In his new role at Glentoran he will be tasked to developing new and diverse revenue streams for the club while also maximising value and mutual financial benefit from our existing partnerships and commercial relationships. Simon will support all sections of the club and will seek to ensure that we achieve best value from all our commercial activities.
Simon said on Monday evening:” My goals are to source new income streams, develop and grow the existing sponsors and partners portfolio and to showcase the considerable sponsorship and partnering opportunities that Glentoran FC can offer to the business community in Northern Ireland and beyond. Glentoran FC is an iconic, forward looking community club for all, with a proud and successful history and heritage in East Belfast and my vision is to grow the commercial and brand opportunities off the pitch to best enable the team to be regularly challenging for silverware on the pitch”.
