“I have a long time interest in sport and particularly in club football in England so when I settled in Ireland and Fintan Drury spoke with me about the business model he had established with Platinum One I was excited about the prospect of bringing my wider business experience to the role of Chairman of the board. We are ambitious to be seen as an agent of change – if you’ll excuse the pun – because even following the industry from a distance as I have done it is clear that change is necessary and that it will come. We intend to be at its vanguard!”
