Dee4Life are delighted to announce the appointment of Kenny Valentine to the Trust board.
Kenny brings with him a wealth of business experience, having worked for major brands in the hospitality and healthcare sectors throughout his career. Specialising in operations and latterly mergers and acquisitions, he held numerous senior and board positions and is currently a non-executive director in both the private and third sectors.
Kenny was born in Dundee in 1968 and has remained a fanatical supporter of the Dark Blues, despite living most of his life outside the city. His first match was an away win at Starks Park (near the family home in Kirkcaldy) in 1978 while his first visit to Dens was for the League Cup semi-final second leg v Ayr United. Both ended as wins (4-2 & 3-2, respectively) for Dundee, perhaps luring Kenny into a false sense of security about the journey ahead.
His determination to ensure that Dundee lived on led to him helping to organise volunteer activities in our second period of administration, and it was Kenny who introduced his good friend and future benefactor/chairman Bill Colvin to the club in 2010/11.
Kenny has lived in Dunblane for the past 15 years and travels to Dundee regularly, with he and his son Callum both being season ticket holders at Dens Park.
Anyone who wishes to join Kenny in the Dee4Life ranks can do so for just £10 a year by visiting https://app.sheepcrm.com/dee4life/membership/.
