New Premier League chief executive

Post by dm » Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:46 pm

The Premier League have appointed a new chief executive, Susanna Dinnage, currently global president of Discovery's Animal Planet brand. Was there really no one from within the sport itself, with knowledge and experience of football and the requisite business acumen, who was able to do the job?

Yet another demonstration of what matters most to the football elite. Money.

It may be that she is someone to try to break the old boys club that has existed for decades.

They did ask someone with full knowledge of football and a requisite business acumen but regrettably he’s currently employed in Australia taste testing kangaroo knackers.

All of the short-listed candidates were very senior/experienced television executives. It's about TV.

Are we all chipping in for Richard Scudamore's leaving present ?
