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.
