Tiverton Town are honoured to announce the appointment of Michael Dunford as Chairman of the Yellows. Michael has a vast experience of helping and influencing Premier League & English Football League Clubs and steering the ship to success.
Michael started at Derby County where he would be a General Manager for 2 years and in November of 1994 progressed to Everton to become club secretary where he would spend the next few years with The Toffees in the Premier League and then in 1999 he was appointed Chief Executive.
In 2004, Dunford would depart Everton and join Plymouth Argyle as a CEO. He would remain at the Greens up until 2009. After his time in the ocean city he would head up to Birmingham City to assist operations as Karren Brady stepped down from the board.
Between 2013 and 2016 he helped out Crawley Town behind the scenes as they were in between League One and League Two at the time. Then after his time at the Red Devils he would become CEO at Chesterfield for a short while. Finally he rejoined Plymouth Argyle to help their operations back in the West Country.
Max Fournier spoke to Michael recently and this is what he had to say. “I'm honoured and delighted to be working with the new Committee and hopefully playing a small part in taking this great club forward"
"We absolutely respect the hard work that the departing Committee have put in over the last 12-24 months but I'm excited with the new direction we're taking and the new emphasis the committee are putting out, we're planning to support Martyn and Scott as much as much as we can to hopefully bring some success on the field and stability off the field"
"The emphasis we want to put out. This is not our club. This is your club. This club was built by our fantastic supporters and that's the message we want to put across. You are all a massive part of our journey and our mission is grow our fantastic group of fans as much as possible"
The Club will issue a statement later today regarding the formation of an Executive Committee who've been brought in alongside Michael.
