Western Sydney Wanderers FC can today confirm that Wanderers General Manager Scott Hudson has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the club.
A Western Sydney local, Hudson has been part of the Wanderers family since 2013 where he has worked his way up through the club’s Corporate Partnership’s department before taking over as Commercial Manager in 2015 with responsibility across all commercial areas.
In more recent years, Hudson has helped oversee the development of Wanderers Football Park, the launch of the Wanderers Foundation, and built an impressive portfolio of Corporate Partners – many which have supported the club for close to a decade.
Hudson was promoted to the General Manager role in March this year to oversee the club’s transition following the announcement of inaugural CEO John Tsatsimas’ stepping down from the role, and has now officially been named the club’s second Chief Executive Officer.
Wanderers Chairman Paul Lederer congratulated Hudson and said the next few seasons would be crucial for the club.
“Today marks a new beginning for this football club, and I would personally like to congratulate Scott Hudson for his role in its formation and the responsibility he has been tasked with for its future,” said Lederer.
“This is an opportunity to reset the club, we know the importance of the job ahead and everyone is committed to achieving our mission to take this club forward.
“Scott knows this club and Western Sydney intimately, growing up in the area and working in sports administration for over 15-years, he is a young man with huge potential and I know he will work incredibly hard for the benefit of the Western Sydney Wanderers.”
Hudson said he was proud to be leading the club into the new decade.
“First of all I am extremely excited by the opportunity ahead for this club, I have dedicated nine years to helping build the foundations of our club and have a plan and a pathway for the future I look forward to sharing over the coming months and seasons ahead,” said Hudson.
“I love this club, and everything it stands for from the Wanderers Foundation and our work in the community, to the mens and womens teams that represent Western Sydney on the field.
“We have a lot of work to be done, to reengage with our fans, and be more present in the community following the past two years that have proved very challenging for our entire region. We want to realise our potential on-and-off the field and that will have my 100 percent focus until we achieve this audacious goal.”
