Marketing & Communications Chief to leave

Matt Grayson to join Redrow PLC as Group Director of Communications

Matt Grayson is set to join Redrow PLC – one of the UK’s leading housebuilders and a member of the FTSE 250 - as Group Director of Communications.


During the last eight and a half years, Matt has led Wolves’ marketing & communications department, supporter consultation activity, and the creation of the Wolves Museum.


As the lead Trustee, Matt also played an important role in the transformation of Wolves Community Trust into a registered charity, which now positively impacts thousands of young people and adults across the City. 


Prior to joining Wolves, Matt held a senior public relations role at Halifax Bank of Scotland Group (now Lloyds Bank), working for a number of brands, including the Wolverhampton-based Birmingham Midshires and BM Solutions.


Laurie Dalrymple, Managing Director, Wolves, said: “We’re disappointed to say goodbye to Matt but, after nearly nine years with Wolves, we understand why he wants to take up this new challenge. 


“His tenure has coincided with some of the most eventful times in the Club’s recent history and during that period Matt has made a superb contribution to Wolves.


“He leaves behind a great team of people, who are well placed to help take forward the Club’s marketing, communications and community plans.”


Matt Grayson, said, “It’s a privilege to have been a part of this great football club.


“I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a fantastic group of people across the Club and I’d particularly like to thank all the staff within my team.


“There is never an ideal time to step off the Wolves rollercoaster, but I’m very excited to have the opportunity to work with Steve Morgan again and with my new colleagues at Redrow.


“I’d like to wish Jeff, Laurie, Kevin, and all the staff and loyal Wolves supporters, my thanks and very best wishes.”


Matt is also a non-executive Board Trustee of College of Wolverhampton and currently a member of both the Wolverhampton Business Champions and the City’s Economic City Board.
