Nika Cuenca Named Athletic Club’s New Director Of Communications
Athletic President Aitor Elizegi has a vision for the club and he’s been working tirelessly to make those goals a reality. He succeeded in bringing on Rafa Alkorta as the new Sporting Director as well as Juan Carlos Ercoreca as the new President of the Athletic Foundation. The changes aren’t finished yet and earlier this week it became public knowledge that there would be some alterations to the Communications department.
On Wednesday morning the club officially announced that Nika Cuenca has been hired as the new Director of Communications. Cuenca has worked as a journalist covering Athletic for the last 25 and is regarded by many as the most reliable source for club information. He’s spent time working with El Correo, Mundo Deportivo, and AS before most recently taking a job as a communications officer for the Spain Football Federation.
The rest of the Communications Department changes should be revealed in time. Cuenca will soon be leaving his post with the RFEF to begin his new career at Athletic in March. Meanwhile, the club has also announced another addition. Jon Vázquez Eguskiza has been named the new Director of the Athletic Foundation and will work directly under Foundation President Ercoreca. The economics lawyer has spent the last 15 years serving in different capacities for Kutxabank.
