Head of media and communications at AFC Bournemouth, Max Fitzgerald will join West Ham as the new Hammers Head of Media Relations before the start of the new Premier League season.
The position was left vacant after West Ham fan, Paul Stringer left to join the Premier League after four years in charge of the press and media department.
Max graduated from Bournemouth University in 2011 receiving a BA (Hons) in multimedia and journalism. During his time at University, the Bournemouth fan was the editor for Bournemouth’s official multimedia portal called the ‘Cherries player’.
On leaving University he joined Bournemouth in May 2011 as a media and communications executive receiving a promotion to the top job as Cherries Head of Media and Communications in August 2012.
Max is likely to become a familiar face standing next to Slaven Bilic in press conferences next season fielding difficult questions and driving forward a new press and media strategy as we move to the former Olympic Stadium.
