Owlerton makes management appointment
6th September 2016
Owlerton Greyhound Stadium has strengthened its team with the appointment of a new assistant general manager.
Matt Hamilton will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the venue and has taken on the role having worked at Owlerton for more than 12 years. The 30-year old, who lives in Hillsborough, first worked as a steward on race nights, before becoming the steward supervisor and progressing to be responsible for overall management of the entire safety aspect as the stadium safety officer. Matt, who lives with his wife and three children, said: -When the opportunity for assistant general manager came up it seems like a natural progression for me and I felt ready to take the next step. -I have spent a number of years being involved across all departments working on the health and safety side of the business so I already know what is involved in the day-to-day running of the stadium, which puts me in a strong position to hit the ground running. -It's a really interesting place to work as no day is ever the same and it's a great team here. I also feel it gives me a great work life balance so I get the best of both worlds. John Gilburn, managing director of Owlerton Greyhound Stadium, said: -Matt is already a well-known and respected member of the team at Owlerton having worked with us for many years, and we're pleased to have him on board in his new role. -He has a wealth of experience across all departments so he was an obvious choice to take on this new challenge and we look forward to seeing him develop further.
