Kenny Baillie will begin in his position as CEO of London Scottish International Ltd on Friday 1st March. His appointment was announced in December 2012 and his new role heading up the rugby club’s plans to develop its position in the RFU Championship will commence this week.
Baillie will be succeeding Tony Copsey, who took over the CEO position at London Welsh on January 1st 2013, and London Scottish Club President Rod Lynch, who had been performing as Interim CEO since the turn of the year.
Speaking about this new role, Baillie said: “I am very much looking forward to starting as CEO of London Scottish and working with all the staff and players. I take over at an exciting time for the Club and relish the opportunity to continue the good work that has been done and help drive London Scottish to even greater success.”
Baillie, a former Scotland Under 21 and senior Glasgow District player, was the youngest CEO in British and European rugby when he was appointed CEO of Glasgow Warriors in 2009. During his tenure, he oversaw the professional team reaching the inaugural Magners League play-offs in 2010 and played a key role in the relocation of the club from Firhill Stadium to its new state-of-the art facilities at Scotstoun Stadium.
For the last 12 months, Baillie has been working in retail marketing marketing and sponsorship where his clients have been major blue chip companies and he previously had a successful career in IT both in the UK and USA.
