    Post Board Nominations Thread

    There has been a positive response for the two supporter representative positions on the Hibernian FC Board of Directors with 17 candidates putting themselves forward for nomination.

    Originally 40 supporters had expressed an interest in the role by the preliminary deadline of November 21.

    Those individuals were then given the opportunity to meet some of the current non-executive directors at one of three sessions at Easter Road, which allowed them to learn more about the roles and responsibilities associated with a Board position at the Club.

    Now 17 supporters have decided to continue with the process, and fellow fans will have the opportunity to vote to decide, who is elected.

    As with nominations, eligibility to vote will be restricted to supporters with a season ticket for one of seasons 2012/13, 2013/14 or 2014/15, or current shareholders*.

    Further information on the voting process will be issued next week.

    I've only heard of 2 of the names on the list.

    Does anyone know if any of them post here or on .Net?

    Would be good to get a feeling of the personality of the person i'm voting for.....

    Yes a few of them post on the forums, don't know if they would be happy with being named but tough, we want open and honest people.

    Kevin martin is pathead
    Andrew Jeffrey is andrew70
    Gordon mackay is gogs/rip (well I think it is)
    Gerard is Gerard

    I'm sure there are a few more

    One of them is that wierdo, Gerard O'Donell, aka Brother Gerard. Amit Moughal is Amit on Hibs net, we all know Big Frank. I think Andrew Jeffrey posts on here but cannae mind his user name? Gordon Munro is a Liebour Coonselur, the rest I don't know at all.

    According tae the links on that page, Amit Moudgil and Gordon Munro are one and the same

    Edit: (only happens when you click directly on the names, it comes up correctly when you use the previous/next arrows below each post)

    4 on that list that certainly winnae be getting my vote.

    I don't think it is, although much of the chat could be. Unless it's a very recent change I'm sure Gogs doesn't work for the Bank of Scotland.

    One way or tuther I'm sure he can clear it up himself :-)

    This is why they should all have pictures up, they cannae be invisible if they're puting themselves forward for this. I just assumed from the name and the post above it was him.


    That'll only be 3 now that defo wouldnae get my vote

    I think it is someone else Nikki? I also think that if you want to represent the fans, you need to front up properly.

    That would be like Maggie Thatcher inviting Mick McGahey into her cabinet.

    Sorry bud but that is a different Mick. I haven't seen the list but my mates tell me the lad in question has added a middle name to distinguish himself from me.

    Wise move :-)

    Surely the candidates have to name themselves and show us their opinion....
    Otherwise for me it will just be a sham....

    Amit

    Amit is a very good friend of mine and he has put his name forward for this position, he is a poster on .net and is trying to get his account re-activated here as well (he disabled it as he was not using it much) i know he is keen to get himself noticed on here to drum up support.
    With regards to the pictures there seems to have been an issue with Hibs and putting his up but it should be fixed shortly if not now.

    So why Amit well his statement pretty much says it all and although i am biased as he is my mate i really believe that he is exactly the person to speak on our behalfs at board level and will be passionate as a fan and with a good business mind that should help us going forward. He also volunteers for the club helping the scouts at the club and can often be seen up at East Mains speaking to George Craig and Eddie May about future scouting.

    I will happily take any questions for him until he can come on and introduce himself

    Jamie, i have sent you a message about re-activating his account

    My name is Gerard O'Donnell and I am one of 17 people who are seeking election to the Hibs board of directors. I am 49 years old. I am active on the Erin Trust and also Working Together. I have experience of customer services, sales, markeing and retentions of customers. If I was elected to the Hibs board of directors I would be focussed on making sure that the Hibs BOD s were kept up to date with the views and concerns of our fans. I would attend all the events of the various Hibs clubs to make sure that the concerns and views of the fans were makde known to the Hibs BODs. I wish all the other candidates good luck in this interesting election.

    Open queston to all candidates:

    What's the single change to the club that you consider to be the top priority?

    Hi Hibadelic,

    For me, personally, it is about re-engaging with lost support and bringing together the fragmented supporter base we have.

    However, the successful candidates would need to canvass the opinion of the supporter base to understand the important issues. The roles are about being a voice for the wider fan base.

    Hope that helps.

I have experience of customer services, sales, markeing and retentions of customers. If I was elected to the Hibs board of directors I would be focussed on making sure that the Hibs BOD s were kept up to date with the views and concerns of our fans. I would attend all the events of the various Hibs clubs to make sure that the concerns and views of the fans were makde known to the Hibs BODs. I wish all the other candidates good luck in this interesting election.
    Word is, you used to support Rangers, any truth in that scurrilous rumour?

    Dear Candidates :-)

    1. Will you support the Bounce quest to get the club Crest of the West stand? [That's not an official policy of the Bounce, just a few of us noisy ones]

    2. a) It's likely your role will include meeting with Working Together. How would you like to develop this link between the club management and the clubs supporters?

    2. b) Given your wish to be involved with the club now why did you not engage with Working Together previously?

    IMO the boards connection to the support is virtually non-existent, so they want two representatives so that they can appear more in-touch and listening. However as two candidates will be elected transparency is a must from a representative, my vote is going for Frank Dougan, he is well known to supporters, attends all games is in-touch with supporters views, this is the criteria that we should be looking for, there's a corporate business mindset in the board room, what we don't need is a representative who thinks he/she is suitable because of their work background ie an experience in working in finance we need a representative with a history in football, its big Frank for me

    Hi Jack,

    If successful, I plan to engage with as many supporters (groups and individuals) as possible. This could be attending face-2-face meetings, via email, during match days etc.

    For me, the role is to be the voice of the fans and to bring their views and opinions to boardroom level.

    Whilst, I'd heard of the WTG, I didn't know much detail about the group. However, recently I discovered the group was involved in a number of initiatives which have been taken on by the club. They obviously do a lot of good work which some supporters may not be aware of. It'll be important to highlight the good work all supporters and supporter groups do. We have a fragmented supporter base and it would be great if we could all come together and work with one another.

    As for the club crest! This is not out of the realms of possibility. However, we might need a fan-led initiative to raise some funds :-)

    Cheers,

    Amit

    On the Bounce there's a like button which people use to express their agreement with a post. It's not available on the mobile version.

    @Gerard can I ask if you will resign your position on the ERIN Trust Committee (they don't have a "board") if elected? The only reason I ask is that, as you will undoubtedly know, it is in their constitution that Committee members are not looking to seek election to the Hibs Board?
    @PatHead can you clarify the situation with your including the Bounce in your pitch to the support? I appreciate you have taken the time to join the site of late - thank you - but I do wonder that you have included us in your pitch. You have thousands of posts on dotnet - so more than reasonable to mention your membership there to fans as many will know of you, have chatted to you and debated with you - but the same can't be said of your Bounce membership. I don't think any of us here can gauge things based on this as we have no understanding of your stance on things - you've not been part of the Bounce community long enough?
    @Amit, welcome back. Thank you for taking the time to post.

    Anyone else out there who is standing for election please feel free to engage fans through this forum. I do know a couple of candidates don't use the forums - maybe it would be good if people can make them aware this may actually disadvantage them as they will be a useful vehicle to let folks engage with them ahead of voting.

    Personally I'm a bit wary of voting for people who want to "bring fans together" while obviously appearing to have joined this site since the nominations or have previously been here but "disabled his account as he wasn't using it much " why would you do that ?

    I'm with you ForzaHibs, it just sees a bit contrived tbh.
    Not sure if I can vote for anyone without knowing a lot more, got a feeling this could come down to who has the most friends on .net which concerns me greatly

    The danger is that those with the most online presence win by default. A whole section of the Hibs support simply never use either dotnet or here. That's a plain and simple fact. If anyone knows any candidate in that situation we need to find a way to hear what they say. I agree, I share the discomfort with people using the place as a vehicle and nothing more.

    I just see another LD situation where we are treated as the poor relations in the future and to be honest some empty promise from a total stranger won't get me to bother voting . There's only one guy i recognise who i know is heart and soul

    How's things? I'm George Henry, one of the candidates for the fans representation on the board. I wanted to introduce myself to everyone and whilst I'm new to the bounce from a posting point of view, I regularly read the forum pages.

    I'm a regular at all home & away games and have been for many years.

    I've attached a link to my profile on the site just in case you've not read it as yet.

    George Henry

    I'm happy to answer any questions that anyone may have.

    Cheers G

    Yes totally, while its a given that all candidates must be season ticket holders and that's easy to gauge, its not so easy to know who travels im not sure who most of the other candidates are, that might change when a picture is attached to the candidates, as its a fan's representative for me who out of the candidates has a proven track record engaging with fans attending away games and organizing trips away has to be the most important criteria, not all fans use websites, what would be tragic would be if someone gets elected because they are known on a forum rather than known on the terrace

    To be fair to @PatHead it was me who encouraged him to join the Bounce for Working Together reasons and before I knew he would be standing, indeed I believe before he himself finally decided to stand.

    I know him rather well, through WT, and would happily endorse his nomination - although I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

    Hi Hibadelic,

    For me, personally, it is about re-engaging with lost support and bringing together the fragmented supporter base we have.

    However, the successful candidates would need to canvass the opinion of the supporter base to understand the important issues. The roles are about being a voice for the wider fan base.

    Hope that helps.
    Thanks :-)

    Can I ask how you'd envisige this happening?

    What's the single change to the club that you consider to be the top priority?
