Bank notes lying flatEd Leek co-opted onto board

Last night’s Dons Trust board meeting formally co-opted Ed Leek onto the board to provide financial expertise that will help us oversee the football club and financing of the new stadium project.

Ed was one of a number of supporters who responded after the board advertised for help in February. After board members Mark Davis, Jane Lonsdale and Colin Dipple carried out a number of interviews, Ed emerged as the leading contender.

Ed has previously worked for KPMG and currently works as part-time finance director for a number of small- and medium-sized companies. He was informally introduced to members at last week’s SGM.

Dons Trust chair Mark Davis said: “Ed’s experience will provide valuable help to both fellow Trust board members and the football club over the coming months.

“We’re moving ever closer to starting work on building our new stadium in Wimbledon, and a key part of that will involve tying down the financial side of the project.

“On behalf of the whole board, I’d like to welcome him to the team.”

We would like to thank all those supporters who responded to our advert.
