Burnley FC Appoints Joint Chairmen

Mon 28th May 2012 | Clubs Ownership

Burnley Football Club have announced the appointment of Mike Garlick and John Banaszkiewicz as joint chairmen of the club.

The two current members of the Board of Directors take over immediately from Barry Kilby, who stood down as club chairman on Friday following a hugely successful 13-year tenure. Kilby, who will retain his shareholding as a director, has resigned his post following the recent announcement of a personal battle with cancer.

Burnley-born Mike Garlick, who joined the board in October 2006, is the managing director of MBA Ltd, a highly successful London-based IT consultancy. He will be joined by Banaszkiewicz, managing director of Freight Investor Services Ltd (FIS) and the newest member of the board having joined in November 2010.

In a statement released by the club, Mike Garlick said: “On this occasion, I believe that one plus one equals three. There is a greater synergy through two people combining their resources in terms of brainpower, knowledge and financial support. We aim to make the club stronger and give us a better chance of success in the future.

“Ultimately, we want to win trophies and drive the club forward. We also want to carry on the spirit of openness with the supporters that was embraced by Barry Kilby, and keep the lines of communication open.”

John Banaszkiewicz, added: “I am honoured to have been elected as co-chairman of Burnley Football Club. I am committed to working with Mike to continue the progress the board has made and bring success to the club in future.

“We are one of the league’s oldest clubs and I believe together we can strike a balance between supporting our local community and building Burnley FC as a global brand.”

The Burnley Board of Directors remains unchanged at five members, with Brendan Flood and Clive Holt retaining their current shareholdings, along with Mr Kilby.
