Former Hibernian chief executive Leeann Dempster is already back in the game.
She has taken on the role of chief executive at one of Scotland’s most famous clubs, Queen’s Park. Queen’s Park is the oldest club in Scotland, and were for many years an amateur side in the professional game.
However, that has now changed, and the Glasgow club are a professional outfit. They currently sit top of League Two. Dempster has joined Queen’s Park after spells at Motherwell and Hibernian.
Did well in Edinburgh
Her time at Hibernian was successful overall. In that time, she helped Hibernian earned their 100-year plus wait to win the Scottish Cup. The team also won promotion back to the Premiership.
Dempster has explained why she decided to join Queen’s Park.
“I have loved every moment of my time in football and winning the Scottish Cup with Hibs was a career highlight. But after 13 years of running clubs in the Premier League I was ready for a new challenge and Queen’s Park offers an amazing opportunity” she said.
“Doing things differently”
“There is now real determination to write a new chapter, to create a tremendous future. One that sees the Club grow on and off the pitch, organically, rooted in its communities. Doing things differently.
“Creating a new, sustainable model to progress a club up through the levels and enabling it to better serve all its communities. I’m excited to be here and looking forward to getting on with the work” Dempster concluded.
This move certainly is an interesting one from Queen’s Park.
