New Chief Executive Appointed

Andrew Andronikou, of accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young and the administrator of Portsmouth Football Club, has secured the appointment of a new chief executive to take the club forward.

David Lampitt will be joining the club from The Football Association. David has worked at The FA since 2003, most recently as Head of Football Integrity and Head of Financial Regulation.

He is one of the most respected administrators in the game and is part of the FA's core management team. He also sits on UEFA's Club Licensing Committee.

He is a qualified chartered accountant who previously worked at Ernst & Young in London and Coopers & Lybrand in Paris.

Commenting on his appointment, David Lampitt said: "I am delighted to have the opportunity to take up this new challenge with Portsmouth.

"The club has been through some tough times this season and I intend to bring some stability and transparency to operations.

"Pompey have some of the best fans in the country and they deserve their great support to be matched by equally high standards of governance at the club.

"I wish Avram, the team and the fans the very best of luck in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend and look forward to coming on board as soon as possible."

Andrew Andronikou said: "I am pleased that we have attracted someone of this calibre to become chief executive.

"My objective is to ensure that the club exits from administration as soon as possible, and it is critically important for Portsmouth's future that we have, in David, a chief executive who will be widely acknowledged and recognised as a safe pair of hands."

David Lampitt will take up the post once his period of notice has been agreed with The FA.

Best news for a long time. Looks like a sound appointment. I can hear Storries "spurs jangling" as he walks off into the distance. Good riddance!

Sounds the ideal appointment. Football experience at the highest level and a Chartered Accountant to boot. Well done Andy!!

Umm.. I remember us praising Peter Storries appointment ... Let's just hope he gets the opportunity to do his job without 'trial by media' or 'vicious supporter groups' digging up anything in his past and using it against him

I think the fact that he was the FA's "Head of Football Integrity and Head of Financial Regulation" shows the kind of direction the club are looking to go. I honestly think that with the meeting with AA indicating that forensic accountants have started looking at past issues and this piece of news shows that AA is keen to leave the club in a position where past "misdemeanors" can't be allowed to recur. I hope it doesn't come back to haunt me but AA just may be the best thing to happen to this club since BS (Before Storrie!)

Fantastic news.....can only be good!
pentonpompey
for me this is great news, finally a man with integrity, knows football and it's people; well done Admin. LoL the second best thing he's done and it was all done quietly; get the habit Admin!

I think it's quite a statement to manage to get somebodywith his background and experience - he wouldn't be coming for the short term. PUP.

Initially, I'm impressed.....

Has David worked with a club before or just the FA? Apparently he was in charge of the dodgey transfer investigation against us? Could ther ebe something more in this or am i being paranoid :/
nodster
yes he sounds like a good man to have at the club, but I am completely confused at the timing of this. How are we in a position right now to take someone on in a top position? Its obviously a long-term appointment, as he's leaving a top level job to come to us. The administrator is trying to attract new owners, surely they, whoever they turn out to be, will have the first say on their people. Or is the ownership issue further down the line than we thought. Even so, they would then wait till its done and dusted. Mr Lampitt must be assured of the long term situation though, but I can't get my head round it at all. It just isn't down to the administrator to make appointments like this. I'm confused.com.

Yes Tracy you are right, their is more to this than meets the eye.

I was surprised. This only means the club is going in the right direction. Great news. Can Admin Andy remain on the board aswell?
