- Sean Jarvis to depart Huddersfield Town in June 2020
- Long-serving Board member has spent nearly 14 years at Town
- Comments from Chairman Phil Hodgkinson
Huddersfield Town can confirm that Commercial Director Sean Jarvis will depart his role at the Club on 23 June 2020.
Sean’s departure will end his near 14-year stint at the Club, during which time he has helped to make Huddersfield Town the centre of the local business community, as he leaves to become Chief Executive at Leicestershire County Cricket Club.
Sean initially moved to Huddersfield from Oldham Athletic in August 2006, taking a dual role as Director of Business Development with Huddersfield Town and the Huddersfield Giants.
Upon Dean Hoyle’s arrival at the Club in the 2008/09 season, Sean’s sole focus became the football club and he soon joined the Board of Directors in June 2009.
Sean’s primary remit as Commercial Director has been to develop new income streams and sponsorship activities, which has seen the formation of initiatives such as the ‘Huddersfield Hundred’, Town’s partnership scheme.
He has also been one of the few people to complete every one of the 10 ‘Pedal for Pounds’ bike rides, helping to raise invaluable funds for charities such as the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Sean has also fundraised for the likes of Hollybank Trust and has acted as a trustee of the Town Foundation since its inception.
Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson commented:
“On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank Sean for the big contribution he has made to Huddersfield Town during his tenure.
“14 years is a long time in one place in any walk of life, but particularly in football, and he deserves real recognition for his work at the Club.
“He’ll always be a friend to this football club and I’m sure everyone wishes him the best of luck as he embarks upon his next challenge.”
Sean Jarvis added:
“It’s been an amazing journey, with so many fantastic memories to cherish.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank the Board, managers, players, supporters, businesses and everyone else who has supported me since I joined the Club. I have made so many friends over the past 14 years and I look forward to watching Town from the terraces.
“Town will always have a special place in my heart.”
