Richard Nichols will take up his role as the club’s new head of commercial & marketing tomorrow.
Nichols joins the Spireites from Sky Bet League One rivals Scunthorpe United.
Commenting on the appointment, chief executive Chris Turner said: “I would first of all like to take this opportunity to welcome Richard to the club. In the face of very strong competition, Richard came out on top in the selection process.
“He had an excellent track record at Scunthorpe and my counterpart there speaks very highly of him. I am sure that he will prove to be a valuable addition to our senior management team.”
