Everton have announced that they have appointed Richard Kenyon as the club's new Director of Marketing and Communications.

Richard, a lifelong Evertonian, will join the club in April when he leaves his role as Chief Executive of PR and Marketing consultancy Kenyon Fraser which led the consultation and design of the new Everton crest last summer.

I have had 10 fantastic years at Kenyon Fraser and it is a great business," he says in a press release from the club, "but I have been passionate about my Club for more than 30 years now, and to have the opportunity to work for the Club and our fans is something I simply couldn't turn down.

In the few months I have been working at the Club, I have been enormously impressed by the work everyone is doing to engage with our fans. The marketing and media teams work tirelessly to communicate with the fans and to make the experience of attending matches the best it can be."

Richard replaces outgoing Director of Communications, Alan Myers, in a more expansive role that includes oversight over Everton's marketing department.

Robert Elstone, Chief Executive at Everton commented on the appointment: Richard has really impressed us through his work last summer leading our crest re-design and the other projects he has worked with us on. It's rare to find someone with such strong skills in both marketing and communications disciplines.

"I knew that as a big Everton fan, he might be tempted by an offer to work with us in a full time capacity and Im delighted that he is able to join us in what is a very important role in our Club.
