Following the announcement yesterday from Wasps Rugby club regarding his upcoming departure, we are delighted to confirm that Chris Bell will be joining the Hatters in January as our new Head of Commercial.
Since being forced to retire through injury at Wasps in 2015, former England U21 centre Chris has spent the past four and a half years working for the club, initially as Head of Off-field Development at Wasps Rugby.
For the last two years, he has been Head of Partnership Delivery for the Rugby Club, Wasps Netball and the Ricoh Arena.
The 36-year-old is now looking forward to bringing a wealth of sporting experience, knowledge and business contacts to his local professional club, living nearby in Bedford, and we look forward to working with him in the new year.
