Latest CEO named
Southend's latest chief executive has been named.
Steve Kavanagh, known to Southend chairman Ron Martin personally, who has previously acted in a similar role with Charlton has been appointed with him telling the official website: 'I have known Ron Martin for a number of years and I have seen first hand his passion and desire to deliver success for the club and I am looking forward to working along side Ron, and the rest of the board, to deliver what is a really exciting future.
'Part of this vision has to deliver success on the pitch and I will be working with Paul Sturrock to build on the feel-good factor that exists in the squad. I was at the match last night and it ended disappointingly, but the spirit in the team having gone down to 10 men so early on, and the desire to go and win the game, was evident.'
Hopefully he can bring some stability in this role, as he becomes the fourth CEO that The Shrimpers have had in the past eight-months!
