Exeter Chiefs V Bristol Bears 12th Oct 19



Exeter Rugby Club Chief Executive and Chairman, Tony Rowe OBE, has welcomed four new directors onto the board of Exeter Rugby Club Limited.

“Our success on and off the field is down to a group of hard-working and dedicated staff, all of whom are determined to drive the club and our business onwards and upwards. The four newly-appointed directors have been heavily involved in raising our profile not just locally here in the South West, but nationally and internationally as well. “Together with the existing board members, they will continue to oversee and spearhead the growth and the vision of our club, which I know is very exciting. Not only do we have big plans in terms of our work with Sandy Park Stadium and the Sandy Park Hotel, but we equally want to continue to forge ourselves as one of the leading rugby clubs both in England and in Europe. “I have no doubt that all four new directors will bring valuable and positive input to the boardroom and I look forward to working with them in helping to drive the business forward.”

Natasha Pavis (Managing Director), Lisa Duncan (Sales & Marketing Director), Nicky Teague (Finance Director) and Toni Percival (Administration Director) have become the first women to be added to the Rugby Club board, which is the subsidiary company of the main Exeter Rugby Group PLC and the main trading company of the club. Mr Rowe said the decision to promote the four long-serving women onto the board was a clear indication of how the club and business as a whole have continued to grow in recent years. In 2018, Exeter Rugby Club were the only profitable team in the Gallagher Premiership, boasting an annual turnover in excess of £20 million - an 18 per cent rise on the previous year’s figure of £17.4 million. “When we first moved to Sandy Park back in 2006, we had a turnover of something like £1 million,” said Mr Rowe. “But over the past 13 years, the club, the stadium and the business have grown enormously whereby we now have an annual turnover of over £20 million.
