Halifax Panthers are pleased to confirm that Lee Kenny, the clubs current Media & Marketing Director, will assume the role of Chairman on an interim basis with immediate effect.

Following Dave Grayson’s announcement last week that he needed to step away from the role to focus on his family and career, the board unanimously agreed to move quickly to fill the vacant position.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with Damian and the team day to day as we look to finish the rest of the season strongly on and off the field”, said Kenny. “With big projects such as The Shay discussion, there is lots to do, and it’s incredibly exciting time to be able to help the club in the short to medium term.”

Mr Kenny has a background in sports retail, broadcasting and in recent times publishing and is an active member of the Calderdale community. Over the past few years these include a trustee position with The Community Foundation for Calderdale, and an active committee member of Calderdale Council’s Halifax Town Development board.
