Hibernian FC has appointed UEFA’s former marketing activities manager, Greig Mailer as the club’s head of marketing and commercial operations.
Mailer will take over the role from Russell Smith, who left earlier this year.
Leeann Dempster, chief executive at Hibernian, said: “I’m delighted that we have recruited Greig to Hibernian. He has a wealth of football experience and has operated at the highest level in the game.
“He will bring a different dynamic and perspective to the Marketing and Commercial team and I look forward to him starting early in the New Year.”
Mailer, who was marketing and communications manager for the Scottish Premier League until 2010 when he moved to Switzerland to manage the sponsorship programme of the UEFA Champion’s League, returned to Scotland last year.
During the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, he was the spectator services venue manager for the rugby seven’s games at Ibrox Stadium and the diving events at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.
