Philip Beard Appointed CEO of Queens Park Rangers.

Mon 22nd Aug 2011 | Football Club Management

Philip Beard has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Queens Park Rangers Football Club, the newly-promoted Barclays Premier League side.

His appointment follows the recent takeover of the Club by Tony Fernandes, its new majority shareholder and Chairman.

Beard has worked in the sports and leisure industry for over thirty years, most recently for American music and sports giant, AEG.

Whilst at AEG, he spent two years as Chief Executive of The O2, where he led the team in transforming the venue from the Millennium Dome into the world’s most popular music and sports venue.

Latterly, he was Chairman of AEG Sport and Sponsorship where he was charged with developing the company’s sporting interests across Europe.

Prior to this, Beard was a senior member of the successful London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic bid team. 

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk about Beard’s arrival, Fernandes commented: “Philip brings a long history of success in the sports industry with him to QPR.

“His track record in leading teams and achieving commercial success is exemplary and I am delighted to have him on board.”

Beard added: “I am utterly thrilled to be joining QPR in this hugely exciting chapter in the Club’s history.

“I will be focusing on helping it become the very best Club it can be, both on and off the pitch.

“I want to ensure the best possible experience for the people who support us day in and day out – our loyal supporters.”
