New Chief Executive announced

24th July 2015

The Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Iain King as Chief Executive. 

Iain, 48, joins the Club after moving from his post as Head of Sport at The Scottish Sun as he continues a working life that has been steeped in football. 

He will now work with the rest of the board to help drive Airdrieonians forward both on and off the pitch. 

Iain said: “I’m proud to have been asked to join a club with such a rich history in Scottish football. 

“I know the vision that the chairman Tom Wotherspoon and Jim Ballantyne have for the future and I am desperate to help them achieve that. 

“This is the new challenge I was looking for when I called time on my newspaper career.” 


Iain, a three-time winner of Scottish Sports News Writer of the Year, moved into the management side of newspapers eight years ago. 

He is passionate about the coaching and development of young footballers and is in the throes of gaining his SFA 'A' Licence. 

He stressed: “One of the big attractions of this job was the chance to help put the foundations in place for a stronger Academy at Airdrieonians. 

“That will be one of my main focuses in Season One as we build for the future. I can’t wait to get started.”
