Woman of the Year Award 2017
Ann Hough is the Operations Director at Huddersfield Town. She is the football club’s longest serving director.
She joined the Huddersfield Town in October 1993 as the Personal Assistant to the club secretary and six years later became club secretary herself, excelling in the role.
She was Club Secretary when the “The Terriers” were plunged into administration in 2003, guiding the club through difficult times. She was appointed to the board in 2007.
She may be a Huddersfield Town fan, but as Operations Director, she is responsible for the club’s day-to-day football administration and runs the match day operation at the club which means she has little, if any, time to watch home games.
Born in the Marsh area of the Huddersfield, Ms Hough went to Royds Hall High School and Huddersfield New College.
These days, she is also a Trustee of Royds Hall Community School.
