    Finance's to work with? I would've thought the £7m annual turnover which is approx the club is.
    no sure of any figures . The club may turnover that money but doesn't mean she has that amount to spend .......

    she will be in charge of a £7m pound annual business, she'll not doubt have the remit to spend revenues as she sees fit whether it be buying/recruiting (players) quality over quantity, handbags or getting her nails done.
    are you actually suggesting RP has hired her and said BTW "you've got 100k to work yer magic with"?

    do you know what a CEO means?

    The King is dead. Long live the Queen.

    Fantastic news. She won't take Petrie's $#@!e and has done a cracking job at Motherwell. I also wonder if she was involved in the recent incentives.

    Positive appointment, Motherwell supporters seem disappointed she's leaving.

    Step 1 - whoever is in charge of running the Hibs Facebook, twitter, marketing in general, get them tae $#@!. HibernianFCClub? Morons. #TBGAWA recruiting now? Get that even further tae $#@!.
    Correct. All very cringeworthy! The guy that does the HTV Interviews is also pretty boring. There's a young lad that does the League of Ireland interviews, he's a Hibbie aswell. Hibs should get him to do the interviews, so enthusiastic!

    By all accounts she certainly has. The key is if she is given full autonomy within her job to conduct it as she sees fit, within her budget. If he`s not going to leave reasonably soon then Petrie really needs to back right off, be a chairman in name only and go and spend his time playing with his SFA pals.
    I started out with nothing and i`ve still got most of it left.

    Yep, i think most of us agree that this was a seriously bad marketing idea. The fishy website is a $#@!in eyesore and that camoflaged tunnel is genuinely horrific.
    The comoflaged tunnel is dreadful. The players have been hiding for ages, we don't need a camoflaged tunnel to add to it :-).

    She's a very ambitious business woman where her success with Motherwell is acknowledged. She's no daftie and wouldn't take the job if it was going to be under RP's input IMO.

    This is finally Rodders moving on but keeping the non exec gig to keep his SFA gig.

    While I think this is a good appointment (I've long since thought we needed someone like Leann Dempster), I'm still deeply concerned that Rod Petrie is going to remain as chairman. I think him and Sir Tom Farmer are the problem, not the lack of a chief executive, so we'll see how this plays out...

    Particularly if we end up relegated.

    Why? He won't be picking up a wage in his non-exec role and it's basically to keep him in his SFA role.

    I expect that to be the case. As i said elsewhere, i dont believe she`s coming to Hibs to be Petrie or Farmer`s stooge. I dont think she`d have left Motherwell if she wasn`t assured she had proper scope to do her job. I guess we`ll find out what that encompasses over the next while.
    I started out with nothing and i`ve still got most of it left.

    Wee bit nippy dm . No am not saying that she will have only 100k to spend and can't see it that she will be able to spend as she sees fit either . But by the sounds of it you know better than the rest of us.

    Agreed.

    We have near-universal agreement that the running of the club needs to change at a structural level. For my money, appointing a CEO with a proven track record in FITBA is a positive step towards this.

    If she turns out to be a disaster, then at least we'll finally know for sure that Hibs are subject to some kind of gypsy curse; in which case, we all go out and apologise to every pikey we can find until the club is fixed.

    I see it as a very positive move by the club, well done Hibs. Her name came up when we met Petrie and Co last Autumn as I remember it.

    I like the sound of what Leeann has to say and I think she might be just what Hibs need.

    I hope that she is allowed free reign.

    This is on paper a very welcome and progressive move by Hibs...Leeann Dempster has done a superb job over the last five years at Motherwell and I look forward to her doing the same for Hibs. I really do hope that Petrie moves on in the summer though and I think he will. He has had his time and so has Mr Farmer. As it stands at the moment it just looks like a Scott Lindsay type appointment with Petrie still hovering around in the background with his 12% holding and of course Sir Tom still in full overall control of everything.

    Remembering as I say that Petrie still owns 12% of the club so for him to leave in the summer for an SFA job he would either have to sell those shares to the fans or to Sir Tom. I hope this is just the start of the big changes at the top of the club I was hoping for and to be honest fully expecting this summer. For me the next thing is to have Mr Petrie moving on and IMO Mr Farmer selling his controlling interest in the club. Nothing mega will happen at Hibs until this takes place. I would also like to see the scouting improved with others assisting Steve Marsella.

    All of the above depends on Hibs staying in the SPFL of course....if we go down then it's year zero at the club and we will have to start again. We must avoid relegation at all costs.

    If I remember correctly he has not been taking a wage for two or three years now.

    I know that, bud. I'm more commenting on him continuing to pull the strings which, to me, is a worry.

    Great appointment by Hibs! Hopefully we can stay up this season. I'll still be here no matter what - I vowed to stick by the Hibees for evermore after they survived the Fat Tory $#@!'s takeover bid in 1990!

    Lest be honest is she going to turn us into world beaters ? Or even a decent spl or whatever its called now side ? As long as farmer is at the helm nothing major is going to change on the financial side imo put it this way all im concerned about right now is staying up and all this boardroom stuff has never bothered me its a bit like politics they are all the same and money oriented and no fck all about football on the park

    Delighted with this timely appointment. The Dempo will bring fresh ideas, a reputation for being innovative - probably due to her non footballing background initially - and experience from her 6 year involvement in football. Motherwell have been top 6 finisher all bar one season (7th place) since 2007/08 despite pretty low crowds and turnover.

    Her marketing background will also prove beneficial to the club. Especially trying to persuade a disillusioned fanbase to part with season ticket money after countless kicks in the stanes (or fan fans for the treacles in our support - ouch).

    Could be one of the most crucial signings we will make as it's clear that the performance of our board has been dreadful based on our footballing achievements in recent years. We are a football club after all therefore infrastructure and balance sheet success SHOULD BE secondary targets so praising the board for this when we have been so $#@! on the field is ridiculous. We can't keep solely blaming managers for results either - I did up until Butch mind!!

    We need her to hit the ground running in June with a few early signings to whet the appetite. I'm pretty sure that the uncertainty of our SPFL status is a bit of a hindrance just now so the sooner that's put to bed the better for us all.

    In Dempo we trust

    It's just that I thought the Bounce was better than that. I was obviously wrong.

    Ah, 1st June? Is that so she can hang about for Motherwell getting knocked out of Europe before she starts?

    Thread tidied up, the alternative was to delete the whole thing. Sorry to the sensible posters whose posts had to be deleted due to quoting others.

    I do think this will prove to be a very good and positive appointment for Hibs and wish LD every success in her new role.
    I am however surprised at the timing of the announcement when she doesn't know whether or not we will be a premier league team. I can only assume she had got to a point where she thought she has taken Motherwell as far as she could after 5 years and was looking for a fresh challenge and presumably we are able to offer her a better salary than Motherwell irrespectve of which league we are in. The bit that intrigues me is that succesful business people tend to move to bigger and better things when looking to develop their careers and the distinct possibilty of us being in the Championship next season doesn't tick that box. Could be evidence of her being a risk taker which is no bad thing because Farmer and Petrie certainly have shown very little capacity for that over the years.
    This appointment should be used by the management and players to act as an extra incentive to make sure we remain a Premier league team. Come on get these points to make us safe and justify LD's appointment.

    The Admin Team felt some of the comments were over the top and not the equivalent of your Petrie's tache example. The editing of the thread became difficult and some other posts were lost in the process.

    It is not a case of making jokes about anyone other than her. It is the case we responded to a number of reported posts and complaints about the tone of some of the posts.

    There were no reprimands, no infractions - just a decision taken that, on balance, there were posts that were a step too far.
