Cathy Jamieson joins Killie Trust Board
Cathy has served as both the local Member of Parliament at Westminster and Member of Scottish Parliament at Holyrood for 16 years. During that time she held Ministerial positions in both parliaments. Cathy is now Chief Executive of a Children's Services organisation in the UK and Ireland and serves as a voluntary Director of Scotwest Credit Union
Being passionate about supporter involvement and ownership, Cathy joined the Killie Trust at the outset in 2003. She is on the Board of the Scottish Football Supporters Association and keen that Scottish football can learn from what is happening elsewhere in Europe to give fans a greater voice in the game.
The Killie Trust launched the Trust in Killie (TiK) initiative in April. TiK aims to raise £100,000 for the purchase of shares to secure a Supporter-Director on the board of Kilmarnock Football Club and provide funding for the club on an ongoing basis thereafter. The Trust will outline TiK in a presentation at the Kilmarnock Football Club AGM on Wednesday 10th May.
Jim Thomson, Chairman of Killie Trust said, ‘Cathy’s drive, knowledge and network will complement and enhance those of the existing Trust board members to ensure that the TiK vision becomes a reality as quickly as possible. She is an exceptional talent to have with us at this exciting time.’
