Bartercard Surrey Storm are delighted to announce the appointment of Dan Clark as General Manager at the club.
Clark will begin work at Surrey Sports Park on Monday as he starts in the new role which will oversee the daily activities of both Storm and British Basketball League side Surrey Scorchers.
The 34-year-old enjoyed an illustrious career in basketball before announcing his retirement earlier in the week. His 17-year professional career saw him smash numerous records as captain of the GB Men’s team, while he also represented Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics.
His next phase will see him make the transition into the new General Manager role as he uses his experience to provide day-to-day support for Storm’s Director of Netball Mikki Austin, while helping to steer the overall direction of the franchise.
Dan said: “I’m extremely excited to get my new role as General Manager of the franchises in Surrey underway.
“It will be a big change for me after my playing career but I’m looking forward to the challenge and hope I can help the two franchises reach their full potential.”
Managing Director Gavin Baker said: “I am thrilled to have Dan on board with us at the Sports Park in this new role which encompasses both Storm and Scorchers. His career speaks for itself and he arrives with a wealth of experience and knowledge of top-level professional sport that can help our franchises reach new heights.
“Dan’s insight and leadership will be invaluable to myself and the rest of organisation as we continue working towards building a successful culture within the franchises during the coming seasons and beyond.”
Everyone at Storm is looking forward to welcoming Dan to the Sports Park when he starts his new role next week.
