EXETER City's new chief executive Guy Wolfenden says the development of the ground is something he is looking forward to 'getting stuck into'.
The 40-year-old, who was unveiled in his new role on Tuesday, has extensive experience in sport having worked as commercial manager and head of sales and marketing at Somerset Cricket Club. He then left the County Ground for Warwickshire, taking up the role of 'head of commercial' at Edgbaston.
He said the ground issue was one he was aware of, but added that the first few months of his reign would be one of taking stock and working out how the club ticks.
"I am conscious of the (ground development) position, although I don't know the fine details at the moment," Wolfenden said. "But I am looking forward to getting stuck into that.
"It is something that can clearly be of big benefit to the club and I think, as long as we do it in the right way at the right time, then it should deliver some real positives.
"I think that everyone would state that there are areas of the ground that could do with some help, but to deliver the finances in order to do that is putting the jigsaw together."
"I think there are a lot of challenges, but my intention is very much to get an understanding of the club and an understanding on what it ticks, why it ticks and how it ticks and, after that, I want to have a knowledge of what I want to put in place," added Wolfenden.
"I am not going to make any decisions or predictions of where we are going to go. I think it is very much a case of getting an understanding of where we are and then look to move it forward after that."
Some sections of supporters have questioned the need for a chief executive, and how it will be financed. Chairman Edward Chorlton stressed that the money has always been in place since former CEO Norrie Stewart left the club in January 2011, while former chief executive Julian Tagg, who will move to a new role as executive director of football, has also defended Wolfenden's appointment.
"It's like the cavalry arriving for me to have someone coming in to help out in an area of expertise," he said.
"It is not my area of expertise and I have known Guy for his experience and reputation, and I am very much looking forward to being able to progress on lots of different fronts."
