Ben Wells Departs Reading as Commercial Director

By Community | May 13, 2014

English Championship club Reading FC have announced today that Commercial Director Ben Wells has left the club.

Wells was appointed in July 2013 with a modernising agenda and has helped move the Club forward during his short spell at the Madejski Stadium, having written the Club’s first ever long-term strategic marketing plan, based on harnessing customer-centric technologies and methodologies.

Reading CEO Nigel Howe said: “We are really sad to be losing Ben, at a time when we were really starting to move our model forward but the ongoing ownership uncertainty and missing out on promotion means that we must address our cost base and unfortunately this is the reason we have to part ways.

“In his short time with us, Ben has made a hugely positive impact and started us on a very exciting journey, which we regret he won’t be able to complete. We wish Ben every success in his next venture.”
