Forest Green Rovers have today announced they have appointed Marcus Reynolds as the club’s new chief executive officer (CEO).
The designation comes following the news in January that Henry Staelens was stepping down from his role after five years as CEO.
In a statement published on the club website, Reynolds said: “I am humbled to be appointed as the next CEO of Forest Green Rovers. This is a unique club that makes a genuine difference on and off the pitch, I’m excited about the opportunities ahead and can’t wait to get involved.”
Reynolds’ past roles include being a senior advisor at Sport New Zealand, CEO of the New Zealand Rugby League and CEO at ASB Classic and Tennis Auckland.

Club chairman Dale Vince describes selecting a new CEO as “a long process, and a lot of CVs to sift through but we think we’ve found an ideal combination of experience and character, Marcus has a great background and focus in all the key areas that we’re looking for ad I’m really looking forward to him getting started.”
A club statement said: “Marcus was chosen from over 600 applicants from around the globe. He joins the club on 1st June and brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked for some of the top organisations in New Zealand.”
Rovers currently sit at the bottom of League One and are winless in eight games since Scotsman Duncan Ferguson took over in late January.
