Changes to Wasps Media and Communications team

Date: 29 Nov 2017


There will be a couple of changes to Wasps’ media and communications team over the next few weeks.

After a combined total of 11 enjoyable years working for Wasps, Ben Lloyd and Melissa Platt are embarking on new chapters.

Ben starts a new venture in the City next week, while Melissa will return home at Christmas to take up a role within a sports marketing company.

Before we go, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone we’ve had the pleasure of working with, plus all Wasps’ fans for your support and camaraderie.

Wasps is a wonderful club, which sucks you in and is extremely hard to leave. It has been a privilege for us to work with such a fantastic bunch of people.

There have been incredible highs, there’s been heartbreak and more than the odd challenge to overcome – but that’s what supporting a team is all about. From all the wonderful memories we have, it is the people we’ve met who really stand out.

We will be leaving you in the very capable and experienced hands of Paul Smith, who many of you will already know from his fantastic rugby coverage in the Coventry Telegraph and Birmingham Mail over the past two-and-a-half years.

Paul loves the game, has spent a lifetime in Warwickshire rugby and will fit perfectly into the Wasps’ ethos. We have no doubt he will be a terrific “new signing” for the club!

Chris Kerr, who has been a fantastic addition to the communications team since joining from Loughborough University a couple of seasons ago, takes over from Ben.

We’ve lost track of the amount of times we’ve written “Once A Wasp, Always a Wasp,” across social media, website stories or press releases. Now we have the opportunity to experience that ourselves.

We will always feel a part of the Wasps’ family and look forward to seeing you all back at the Ricoh Arena soon, black-and-gold flag in hand, supporting the team.

Thank you all and keep up your fantastic support of the club!
