Arsenal have announced revised titles for three members of the board to better reflect the current leadership structure.
Stan Kroenke and Josh Kroenke will henceforth be known as Co-Chairs and Tim Lewis takes on the role of Executive Vice-Chair.
Stan and Josh were previously Directors with Tim a Non-Executive Director. Lord Harris of Peckham remains a Director.
What does it all mean? Not much, although it sounds like Lord Harris may not get first dibs on the boardroom biscuits anymore.
Beneath them, CEO Vinai Venkatesham has direct reports covering all manner of other departments from communications and commercial teams to marketing and finance.
On the football side of things, he and Tim Lewis also work closely with Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker, Richard Garlick and Edu to keep things ticking over on a day-to-day basis.
In a statement published on Arsenal.com, Stan Kroenke said:
“This is a simple evolution as part of us all driving Arsenal forward and further reaffirms our family’s long-standing commitment to this great club. Stability in football has never been more important as we move past the pandemic, and we believe this is the perfect time to formalise these roles.
“Our objectives and ambition will never waver – to field teams that compete for trophies at the highest level and lead our club in a way that inspires our passionate supporters around the world.
“Supported by our Director, Phil Harris, and together with our Executive Team and all our wonderful people, we have an incredible opportunity to build on the values and traditions of Arsenal Football Club.”
