New investors


Recommended Posts

A NUMBER of Derby County's investors have joined the club's board of directors.

Bill Luby, Tom Vertin and Dave Richardson have been registered as Rams directors at Companies' House.

Jeff Mallett and Tom Ricketts, both part of the ownership group, have also been added to the board. Their paperwork is currently being processed.

"It was just a matter of deciding which of the owners wanted to take up that role and be involved in discussions on the day-to-day running of the business and governance of the football club," said Rams chief executive Tom Glick.

"They are the same guys we have disclosed in the past, so there is no big issue here," Glick added. "Bill, Tom and Dave were registered in November 2009, which coincided with Adam Pearson departing.

"It was just a case of getting the paperwork across, even down to changing the colour of ink on the paperwork from blue to black."

Richardson has replaced Brett Wilson on the board, though Wilson remains one of the owners.

"That is a practical move because Dave helps to run Brett's businesses for him," said Glick.

The Rams board of directors is now: Andy Appleby (chairman), Glick, Luby, Vertin, Richardson, Mallett and Ricketts. Malachy Brannigan is company secretary and vice-president, finance.

John Vicars (vice-president, operations) and Tim Hinchey (vice-president, commercial) are part of the management team.

Sounds hopeful......doesn't it? they must no that we can't make any cutbacks if we want to at least stay in this league. Hopefully one of them gets a hard on when they visit Pride Park and makes the suggestion to pump in £6-8m for signings.
