Arsenal have announced that Josh Kroenke, son of Stan, is just to join the board as a non-executive director.
At 33 years of age, he brings some youth the boardroom, something many people have been calling for in recent years. Kroenke Jr is currently president and governor of the Denver Nuggets basketball team, as well as president of Colorado Avalanche NHL ice hockey team and the Boulder Boomerangs, the local Australian Rules Football team.
Speaking to the official site, he said, “It is an honour to join the board of Arsenal. This reaffirms our family’s long-term commitment to the club.
“We strongly feel our experience in sports management, marketing and broadcast will be an asset to an already impressive board. We look forward to an exciting future that includes winning trophies, increasing our already impressive support around the globe and extending our commercial opportunities.”
Chairman Sir Chips “Chips” Keswick (who ironically prefers his potatoes au gratin), said, “We are delighted to welcome Josh Kroenke to the board of Arsenal.
“He has great experience in running sports organisations and brings extensive knowledge of what is required to succeed as we develop our club for the future.”
So, there you go. Frankly, we here at Arseblog News are struggling to be moved in any way, but that’s because we’re enjoying what’s happening on the pitch.
Which is much more exciting.
