Barnsley FC announces a reconstitution of the Club’s board of directors

Barnsley FC have announced a reconstitution of the Club’s board of directors. This has taken place as a result of the change of ownership of their parent company, BFC Investment Company Limited (BFC).

The club issued a statement on their official website, which read: “At the time of purchase of the Club from the Cryne family in 2017, the majority of Pacific Media Group’s (PMG) shares in BFC were owned by several individual private investors (Investors), who had agreed to the appointment of PMG as their temporary nominee. Upon the expiration of this nominee arrangement, the Investors directly registered their ownership interest in BFC. As a result, the Investors and other existing BFC shareholders, have reconstituted the Club’s board as follows:

“Paul Conway, Chien Lee, Dickson Lee and Grace Hung have left the Club’s board with immediate effect.

“Jean Cryne has agreed to serve as a director of the Club.

“Julie Anne Quay has agreed to serve as a director of the Club as a representative of the Investors.

“These changes mean that the Club’s board now comprises:

“Neerav Parekh, James Cryne, Jean Cryne (pending EFL approval), Julie Anne Quay (pending EFL approval), Khaled El-Ahmad (Chief Executive Officer) and Robert Zuk (Finance and Operations Director).”

Neerav Parekh has reacted to this, “Barnsley Football Club is an anchor institution of this town. And we, as custodians, are aware how much this Club means to the people of Barnsley. Last season was a low point for the Club results wise, and we pledge to put results on the pitch as the primary driver for everything we do at the Club,” Parekh said.

“Moving forward, we want to work closely with all our partners. In particular our fans and Barnsley Counci. To ensure that the Club continues to be an institution that we’re all proud to support. It takes a long time to rebuild broken relationships, but it is our responsibility to do so, step by step. Spectemur Agendo.”
