Back in 2010 when I first met Harry MacLean, he was the CEO of Dundee Football club. The owner of the football club had withdrawn financial support and Harry was trying to manage the club in extremely difficult circumstances. The very existence of the club was at stake at that time.
In my opinion Harry did a tremendous job of managing a number of complex financial, operational, personnel and PR issues all under the gaze of the public eye and with the added emotional pressure from Dundee fans. In addition, Harry gathered financial support from fans and investors which directly enabled the club to successfully emerge from Receivership in 2011 and continue to trade up to the present time.
