General Manager Georgina Slawinski to leave position

    Chester Football Club can today announce that General Manager, Georgina Slawinski, is to leave the position next week, in order to pursue a new business opportunity whilst continuing her role with the Premier League.

    Georgina joined Chester FC in June 2022, bringing with her a blend of enthusiasm, dedication, and a visionary approach that has helped to reinvigorate the club’s commercial development and brand within the local business community.

    Recently re-elected Chair of City Fans United, Kieron Shiel said…

    “Georgina has been a great asset to the club, especially on the business development side of things, which we were severely lacking as a club when she was appointed.

    “During her time as General Manager, we have seen a substantial increase in hospitality attendance, partnerships and sponsorships contributing to a notable increase in the club’s overall commercial income.

    “In addition, she managed to land our first stadium sponsor in over three years with Leap76 and secured the first Harry Mac stand sponsorship since the club’s reformation.

    “The club is in a much stronger position than when Georgina joined us, and the Board of Directors, working together with our staff and volunteers, will ensure this platform is used to continue driving forward the business.

    “We will all miss Georgina’s energy around the building, but once a Seal always a Seal, so I hope to see her in an around on matchdays in the future”.

    Speaking on her departure, Georgina expressed her deep gratitude for the opportunity to work with Chester FC…

    “I am extremely proud to have served as General Manager of Chester Football Club over the last 18 months. The opportunity to contribute to the club’s business development, with the support of both the Directors and the fanbase, has been a key and rewarding aspect of my tenure.

    “As I transition to new business opportunities, I’d like to express my sincere appreciation to the incredible fans and volunteers – the heart of Chester FC.

    “Additionally, thank you to our partners and sponsors for their unwavering support. To the Directors, I am thankful for this opportunity and to have worked alongside you to drive the club’s commercial growth forward. It has been a pleasure working with you all.

    “Chester FC will always be a key part of my professional journey, and I will be rooting for the club to achieve the promotion it deserves.”

    This period of transition provides an opportunity for the club to assess its off-field structure to identify where improvements can be made, and we will provide further updates to supporters in due course.
