Ravens appoint Commercial and Marketing Team

By Bridgend Ravens | 12/06/2013

As Bridgend Ravens gear up for the new season, we are pleased to announce the formation of a new Commercial and Marketing Team, tasked with improving the off the field fortunes of the club.

Consisting of well respected supporters that all have an affinity with Bridgend Ravens, the team consists of Robin Thomas, Alyn Wylde, Steve Hughes, Rhydian Cole and Aled Thomas.

Robin Thomas, who is currently UK Account Manager for a Global business involved in nuclear and biomass power generation and a major alliance partner to EDF, while Alun Wylde currently works for successful local business Camplas, recently named by the Wales Fast Growth 50 as fastest growing firm in the manufacturing and engineering sector and twelfth fastest growing company in Wales in all sectors. Steve Hughes is Commercial Director of Bridgend-based Roma Medical, former main sponsors of Bridgend RFC.

On the media side of things, Rhydian Cole, a graphic designer who works as part of the Marketing team at the Ospreys joins with History graduate Aled Thomas, who will manage all online activities and social media channels, including BridgendRavens.co.uk, the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, an area the Ravens are looking to really build on in readiness for next season.

On formation of the new team, Ravens Secretary Norman Spain said, "We're looking to create something very exciting at the Ravens this season. We have a new commercial / marketing committee set up which is looking at forming a real bond between the players, fans and businesses alike."

"The players realise the importance of the part the fans play in their success, and with a number of events being planned for pre-season, we are looking for this as something that will really take off and help the club during next season, and beyond."

"We know there is a large fan base out there who support the Ravens, and with quite a bit of interest already building up ahead of the season, we are hopeful that season ticket sales this season will eclipse the total sold last season. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going into the season."
