Online PR News – 30-April-2009 – – THG Worldwide, Inc. CEO Jon Stromberg says the appointment of Roy Keane to head the Ipswich Town Football Club is part of an effort by THG’s parent company, marcus evans, to bring the team back to the top level of competitive football play, the Premier League.
“We’re excited about the prospects for the team under this new leadership,” Stromberg says. “This change is a win-win for everyone, particularly Ipswich fans.”
Keane’s recent appointment to head the Ipswich club follows his work as head of the Sunderland football club, which he left last December. With his two-year contract, Keane replaces Ipswich coach Jim Magilton. For the past eight years, the Ipswich Tractor Boys have played in England’s second-highest league, the Coca-Cola Football League Championship. This past season, the club failed to make the playoffs.
In a release, Marcus Evans, the founder of the eponymous hospitality company that includes the THG Worldwide division, says Keane "is a proven winner who encourages his team to play the attractive football that Ipswich Town fans have come to expect. I believe he is the right man to take this club where we want to be—the Premier League."
“The team under our new coach is already off to an impressive start with this past weekend’s 3-0 win over Cardiff,” says Stromberg, whose company provides hospitality offerings through its association with the Ipswich club. “It bodes well for the future.”
