Alan Russell

Alan Russell

Alan joined the Council of Supporters Direct Scotland in the summer of 2017 and became our Chief Executive in May 2018. He has been on the board of Raith Supporters Trust since 2004, and his work on the SDS Index has given supporters across Scotland greater insight into the ownership status of their clubs as well as their approach to transparency and supporter engagement, and he has had several articles published regarding the ownership structure of his own club.

When he’s not writing, thinking, talking about or playing football (badly) his work in a specialist management consultancy sees him focus on the implementation of strategy – planning this with senior teams, developing communication approaches to key stakeholders, engaging and enrolling teams and functions, and tracking the impact of these strategies on business results. His role in Supporters Direct Scotland will be to use these skills to enhance our offer to supporters groups, football clubs and our governing bodies.
