Latest Everton News: Following their narrow relegation escape, Everton is implementing some changes to help the club back on its feet
Bill Kenwright, the chairman of Everton, will continue in his position while Farhad Moshiri, the majority shareholder, will be added to the board of directors. This move comes as the Premier League club goes through a period of change.
“I wanted Bill to remain as our Chairman during this important period of transition for the Club and I am delighted that he has accepted my request to do so,” Moshiri said in a statement on Friday.
“Bill’s knowledge and vast experience will be crucial for us as we look to reset, deliver on external investment and position Everton for a successful future.”
Colin Chong, the chief officer responsible for the construction of the new Everton Stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, has been named as the temporary CEO and director.
James Maryniak, the director of finance, will assume the role of interim CFO and handle all financial affairs. Additionally, John Spellman, a certified accountant, will be joining the board.
The recent personnel changes follow the departures of chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale, finance officer Grant Ingles, and non-executive director Graeme Sharp from the board.
These departures mark the start of significant changes at the Merseyside club, as they continue investment discussions with U.S. group MSP Sports Capital to ensure the new stadium is completed.
