Sports enthusiasts Rob and Kyle, who are also huge Philadelphia Eagles fans, join the Wanderers set-up following several months of positive dialogue with the Wanderers board. After developing a passion for Dorking Wanderers from afar, they will primarily be responsible for building the clubs profile and followers both in the United States and across the globe.
“Once I stumbled upon the Dorking story I was hooked”
Rob is an Actuary by trade, and Kyle specialises in the insurance sector, so they bring a wealth of business acumen to add to the Wanderers management structure as the club embarks on the next chapter of it’s non-league journey.
Kyle Shestack commented: “Once I stumbled upon the Dorking story I was hooked. I read and watched many interviews that Marc had done, saw the Bunch of Amateurs episodes, saw the British record of promotions, and thought this could be the perfect opportunity to attempt to get involved with a special club. I researched the community and saw how unique the story was and how much the club means to the town. I shared this insight with Rob and he agreed that it would be worth reaching out. After getting in touch the club got straight back to me, and over the next few months Marc and I spoke almost daily on what it would look like for us to join the Wanderers. The rest as they say is history and we’re looking forward to playing our part in helping DWFC reach its full potential”.
Executive Director Kris Lea said: “We are delighted to welcome Kyle and Rob to our boardroom. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and they have demonstrated from the outset a real desire to help the club move forward. The senior management team felt that they would be a great fit, and we are looking forward to seeing the positive impact they will make on the club stateside”.
Both Rob and Kyle are in the UK for the Wanderers home fixture versus Torquay United on February 21st (when they will be introduced to supporters before the match), and Wrexham away on February 25th.
