I am delighted to tell you that Keith Winter has been appointed Dee4Life Chair.
Keith brings with him a wealth of professional experience having held senior positions in local authorities north and south of the border. Before retiring last year, Keith held the position of Executive Director of Enterprise and Environment at Fife Council.
His field of expertise is town planning and economic development and he holds non-executive directorships and other voluntary positions with a number of organisations.
Keith (above) impressed my fellow Dee4Life directors and I with his passion for Dundee and his desire to ensure that the voices of his fellow fans are heard by the club board.
Keith, who has followed Dundee since 1969 and is a member of the Invergowrie Dark Blues, said: “After discussions with representatives of the Trust, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to fulfil the role of Chair particularly given my long association as a fan of The Dee.
“I hope to bring some of my experience from other roles and organisations engaged in partnership working. I will seek to achieve goals and common objectives, whilst representing the Trust in its purposes, engagement with, and support for Dundee Football Club and its supporters.”
Keith’s appointment was approved by the Dee4Life board at our meeting on Monday 1 May.
Minutes from this meeting will be available online shortly and further updates from the Trust will be shared at the conclusion of the season.
Keith takes on the role from Norrie Price who has stepped down but remains an active board member.
