  • hibs.net response to the club's statement of 29th May

    In response to the club's statement on Thursday 29th May the Hibs.net Admin team would like to reiterate the point made regarding Rod Petrie's continued involvement at board level. We are in no doubt that his presence will hamper Leeann Dempster's attempts to engage with the support when she takes up the role of CEO next week. It doesn't matter how many times she tells us that she has full control, and that Rod Petrie is not offering any guidance, as a large section of the support simply won't believe that.

    While Rod Petrie remains on the board it will be extremely difficult for Leeann to achieve the season ticket sales and sponsorships required to fund the club's push to get out of the Championship at the first time of asking, and that has to be the number one priority for everyone connected with Hibernian FC. Rod Petrie should recognise this himself and step down with immediate effect.

    The admin team is confident that the vast majority of the site's users agree with this view.

    The admin team did not receive a reply to the e-mail sent to the club on 27th May. We will write to Leann Dempster when she starts on Monday to make the same point and will ask for her reply.

      He should also donate his shareholding to Kicks for Kids at his exit interview.

      I'd rather he helped LeeAnn settle in and then move on.

      Well put......there is a lot of work to be done, Leeann must be given and be seen to be given complete control.
      lets get back to being classy Hibs !

      I think it is a big disrespectful to suggest that supporters would think that she would lie about Petries involvement. If he steps down who will STF and RP install as they hold the shares that count? Maybe Ken Lewandowski would come back.
