confirmed by club

MICHAEL Dunford is returning to Home Park as Chief Executive.

Michael, who also held the post between 2004-2009, replaces Martyn Starnes.

He said: "When the opportunity arose to re-join Argyle, the decision could not have been easier. To play a role in taking the club forward, building on the solid foundations now in place, is a wonderful opportunity."

Michael's appointment follows a rigorous selection procedure and interview process.

Michael said: "The club is certainly different to the one I left in 2009 and I have been extremely impressed with the ambition shown by chairman James Brent, vice-chairman Simon Hallett and fellow Board members.

"I am really looking forward to building a solid working relationship with Derek Adams, who has given all our fans hope that our on-the-field fortunes will continue to improve."

James Brent said: "We are delighted that Michael is coming back home to provide executive leadership at Argyle, a club for which he clearly has genuine passion.

“The Board is keen to drive the club forward at pace in pursuit of success aligned to its values and we are delighted that Michael has joined to play his part in this journey.

“I would take the opportunity to thank Mark Lovell for his impactful leadership as interim CEO. Over his short tenure, it has become very clear that the incredible success of Argyle in the Community (including being 12th in the entire English football pyramid in terms of the investment it puts into our community) has been the result of no coincidence."

Michael will formally take up his position on Monday, July 16.

Since leaving the Pilgrims after being made redundant, Michael has been chief executive of Birmingham City, Crawley Town and Chesterfield, as well working as a judicial panel member of the Football Association.

He also had a brief spell as Managing Director of Plymouth Albion.

Michael originally joined the Pilgrims from Everton after moving there from Derby County, where he had been club secretary, in January 1995 and was the firm hand on the tiller during nine often turbulent years at Goodison Park.

He came to Home Park after Argyle had been promoted from what is now League One, and saw the club establish itself as a Championship outfit.

It is there that he would like to take the club in his second term as Home Park CEO, but he said: "We won’t make any rash predictions other than to promise that the hard work will continue on behalf of the Green Army.

"It's fantastic to be coming back.

"Come on you Greens!"

If I remember correctly, didn't Keith Todd get rid of Dunford and take on the role himself?

Which is quite incredible when Durnford had made it publically clear he wanted the job. I'm guessing Brent had probably got to the point of it being a no-brainer with no one else being prepared to work for the pittance of a salary which was probably being offered.

Speaking of No-Brainers, I doubt if his opinion of Newell will cause much of an issue. I don't Starnes was particularly keen on him either and Iddesleigh certainly wasn't.

Plymouth Argyle have announced that Michael Dunford’s CEO position will no longer exist (from 31st July 2009), as part of a Management restructure.

Dunford joined Argyle in January 2005 in a relatively new position for the club. He was previously in a similar role at Premiership Everton.

Dunford has come in for criticism from some Argyle fans, mainly due to lack of communication from the Club’s Senior Management and trying to remove Semper Fidelis from the matchday experience. But Dunford has been credited with arranging the new Adidas kit deal and the successful Summer concerts at Home Park. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Was hoping for better, but this will do. Will be very interesting to see what impact he has, and how him and Derek can work together.

Exactly...

Who is keen on him apart from Brent? Brent rules the nest, and Nool (got that Beezy?) isn't being kicked out!

In terms of CEO he's a nomark free transfer from relegated Chesterfield, so cheap and well suited to little Akkeron Argo, that said apparently he has no time for Arse licking superfans so not all bad.

I remember a meeting in the FPC held by Dunford where he addressed the fans. 90% of the crowd (and it was packed) were baying for his blood. I thought he was going to be attacked! Now it seems... Most are proclaiming him the man for the job?

Rather strange that Brent's visionary 'interviewing process' takes us back to where we were almost a decade ago. If he is the man for the job, why wasn't he given it before Starnes was hired?

Not one word from pig master, is PL2 3DQ paving the way.

In his 9 years away he might have developed new methods? He is being judged under his previous stint when he had to work with Todd, Gardner and co, this time around he could be very different when working with different directors and manager.

One thing is for sure he knows his stuff and would have plenty of contacts within football, especially at the EFL and the various committees.

He was internally promoted at Everton and was CEO at Birmingham city.. he is more a football man than Starnes and is exactly what the club needs.

I vaguely remember stewards wading into the Devonport End removing people for standing up a lot during his tenure. Other than that...
