ALBION WIN TWO GLOBAL AWARDS

11 June 2015



Brighton & Hove Albion achieved further success last night at FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium, with global awards for two members of the club's staff.

The club's head of marketing Tom Gorringe and lottery manager Keith Gallis won individual accolades at the prestigious Stadium Business Awards 2015.

Keith followed on from his success at the Football League Awards 2015 by winning the Unsung Hero Award as recognition for his 50 years of dedicated service to the club.

The Albion stalwart has carried out a number of roles during his time at Albion, from volunteering at the Goldstone to running Seagull Travel and managing the club’s lottery and programme sales on a matchday.
 
The presenter on the night, Richard Peddie, former CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment paid this tribute to Keith:

"Every stadium has a person who works tirelessly behind the scenes.  A 'glue guy' - who holds everything together.  Keith is one of those people."

Tom became Albion's new head of marketing in July 2014 and has since spearheaded a number of ideas to improve fan engagement at the club along with marketing executive Marc Dring.
 
A host of other awards were given on the night including the New Venue of the Year Award, which given to Levi's Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers - an award previously won by the Amex in 2011.
