The FA Appoint New Chief Financial Officer

Mon 21st Jan 2013 | Money & Finance

The FA have announced the appointment of Andrew Crean as Chief Financial Officer of The FA Group who take up the position from April 2013.

He will replace Mark Donnelly, who is leaving The FA to become Chief Operating Officer at Premier League club Queen’s Park Rangers. 

Crean will be responsible for building on the increasing financial stability across The FA Group, Wembley’s improved trading position, with 30 major events planned this year alone, and the early success of the state of the art national football centre St. George’s Park. 

FA General Secretary Alex Horne said: “I am delighted to welcome Andrew to The FA. It is an extremely exciting time for the organisation with plenty going on across all levels of the game.

"Our notable anniversary is being used to highlight the £100m we reinvest into football every year and our commitment to the grassroots. Andrew’s work will help us to further this important area of focus.

“I am confident Andrew will be able to add his considerable experience and expertise to the financial performance of the Group, including the strong risk and business management processes we have in place.

"He will also be responsible for the HR, IT and Legal departments and I have no doubt his energy and enthusiasm will be welcomed by all staff.” 

Crean, who joins The FA from The Jockey Club, British horseracing's largest commercial group which runs the likes of Cheltenham, Aintree, Epsom Downs and Newmarket racecourses, said of his appointment: "I’m really looking forward to the challenge of joining The FA at an important time for the organisation and in its 150th anniversary year. It’s a fantastic role and an opportunity I’m grateful for. 

"Like many people in this country, I'm a lifelong football fan, so to be involved professionally at the heart of the nation's sport is very exciting.

"At the same time I’m very sad I’ll be leaving a great team of people. The journey The Jockey Club is on commercially is something I’ve really enjoyed being part of. 

"Every penny the Group makes goes back into growing Britain's second biggest spectator sport and I'm sure there are many successful years ahead for both The Jockey Club and British racing.”
