There is a difference between openness and being a CEO and leading the club.

I said nothing about his ability to do the job. My point is that it would be quite a statement FROM CLEM about being open to go appointing a board member of the trust. Regardless of whether or not anybody thinks he's up to the job - he's still on the trust board.

And I wasn't replying to you anyway.

Would they be able to stay on the Trust board*

*if the person in question is even on the trust board.

This could be a lot of hypothetical discussion over nothing.

If the CEO is the name I’m hearing from the trust he will be very astute appointment hes been operating at director level for years, he’s a brilliant communicator and would have great connections for sponsorships and link ups with other business's.  He’s also a huge Swindon fan, I’d be happy with his appointment.

I'm sure the Town End will also come up with some brilliant Clem inspired songs as well.

Hopefully:

‘Owners, everybody needs good owners
With a little understanding
You can find the perfect blend
Owners, everybody needs good owners
We’ve got Morfuni, he’s Swindon’s friend’

‘Red Armyyyy, we travel up to Carlisle
Red Armyyy, we travel down to Sutton
Bringing all the noise we’re Swindon Town’

Hopefully not:

‘Cheap Aussie plumber
You’re just a cheap Aussie plumber’

Nor this one, which would have to be sung with a massive dose of hindsight:

‘Did you think we couldn’t see you coming
With your diggers and your plumber’s wrench?
You promised a lot but that was just rot
You’ve brought debt and a rotten stench’

Very funny that people clearly know who the new CEO is but are still treating it like a covert signing from a Premier League club.

Those not happy with the appointment can always get a petition to reinstate Steve Anderson.

Well, I for one don't have a clue who it could be.
I read a couple of pages back Michael Doughty named, loved the club would love to see him come back.
If anyone wants to actually say that would be very much appreciated.

His name has been mentioned over the last few pages…. And it’s not Miles Jupp.

As for who the new CEO if it's who I've been told it is (and I have no reason to doubt it is)

a) It's Clems businesses so its his choice, considering what he has spent and the liabilities he inherits I cannot imagine he would appoint based on sentimentality.
b) Any link to the Trust is irrelevant it the guy has the skills to do the job.
c) Considering the fractured relationships to both the fan base but also the wider community appointing a known fan with great local business links (and the business acumen to be CEO) seems quite the well thought out masterstroke.
d) having read the guys bio he has, a job in the real world, I assume issues of him having to work notice from that have been addressed in some manner?

As with manager, DoF etc, once again seems to be a considered and thoughtful appointment based on ability rather than cronyism, which makes a nice change.
