New roles for Kelly Derham and Selim Gaygusuz
Crawley Town are delighted to confirm two new key appointments at the club.
Kelly Derham has become the club’s Operations Director and will join new owner Ziya Eren on the board of directors.
Kelly will have overall responsibility for the club’s off-field operations and will continue with her current responsibilities as Secretary and Head of Finance.
Selim Gaygusuz is joining the club as Director of Marketing and will also be taking up a place on the board.
Selim previously worked for Coral, one of the country’s leading High Street and online bookmakers, in a marketing role.
Kelly, who joined the club in 2012, said: “I’m delighted to have accepted Ziya’s invitation to take on this new role.
“We have a small backroom team at the club who are as united as Mark Yates’ players are on the pitch. Since the takeover happened it has been business as usual but we are all excited about the future for Crawley Town under Mr Eren.
“We are looking at every aspect of our off-the-field operation at the moment. Selim will have an important job to play in marketing the football club, in particular to the business community, and building relationships with our commercial partners.
“We also want to strengthen ties with our supporters and feel the first step towards that is working more closely with the Supporters Alliance. We will be meeting members of the CTSA committee next week to discuss ways where we can work together for the good of our football club.”
A further appointment at the club sees Tolga Dervish joining the marketing team.
