Cathy Jamieson appointed to Kilmarnock board of directors

Kilmarnock have announced the appointment of Cathy Jamieson to the club’s board of directors.

Jamieson has enjoyed a career in politics which has seen her act as deputy leader for the Scottish Labour party and as an MSP in Holyrood, while she is a lifelong supporter of Kilmarnock.

She joins the board after the Kilmarnock Supporters Society (The Killie Trust) reached its £100,000 funding target which means Jamieson will be able to represent the Killie fans on the board, with the hope of strengthening the bond between the club and its supporters.

The Killie Trust was set up 15 years ago with the aim of giving fans more of a voice at Kilmarnock, and by setting up Trust in Killie it has managed to raise funds to buy unallocated shares in the club that sees Jamieson elected to the board as a director after she was voted in by fellow members of the Trust.

Director John Kiltie told the club website: “From the list of high calibre candidates, selected by the Trust board, whom we interviewed for the position, it was a unanimous decision to appoint Cathy.

“She has a vast knowledge of community issues and business both locally and nationally; we are confident in our selection and welcome Cathy on to the board of Kilmarnock Football Club.”

Killie Trust Chair Jim Thomson added: “This is a truly historic day in the lifetime of the Kilmarnock Supporters Trust.

“The commitment and vision of the Killie supporters who have subscribed to the ‘Trust in Killie’ initiative have given us this important and vital voice and I’d like to thank them once again. They have recognised that we cannot rely on a few individuals to sustain the club we all love and have created a long-term revenue stream to help ensure it will prosper for generations to come.

“Cathy was the unanimous choice of all Trust Directors to be the voice of our supporters.”
