National Football Museum names new chair and CEO with double appointment
POSTED 22 Sep 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
England's National Football Museum has announced two senior appointments, with Ian Penrose named non-executive chair and Tim Desmond taking over as CEO.

Having worked in the sports, leisure and gaming industry for more than 20 years, Penrose, who takes up his position with immediate effect, is responsible for overall governance and leadership of the museum’s board of trustees.

Having been CEO of Sportech since 2005, Penrose has has led the company’s strategic repositioning, making it one of the world's largest sports gaming technology providers and operators.

Desmond will take up his position from 6 November. He was previously CEO of the National Justice Museum in Nottingham, where he expanded the not-for-profit to set up education syndicates for children and young people to learn about the law at the UK Supreme Court and Royal Courts of Justice in London, the Manchester Civil Justice Centre and Crown Court.

“I have been on the board of trustees at the museum for many years, and have been proud to see it develop into the world-class visitor attraction that it is today,” said Penrose.

“I am pleased that Tim will be taking on the role of CEO. His successful track record, plus our combined keen interest in football, should ensure that we can lead the museum to the next stage of its development.”

Desmond said: "In my mind, there is no greater job in museums and attractions, than being the CEO of the National Football Museum in Manchester. I am looking forward to working with the Museum’s highly skilled and experienced trustees, staff, and volunteers, to create new opportunities for visitors to enjoy the history of our national game.”
