Baker Tilly partner takes charge at Leicester City
Leicester City FC has appointed a Baker Tilly partner as its new chief executive.
The club went into administration last October and was sold in February to a consortium led by Gary Lineker.
Baker Tilly partner Tim Davies, who was part of that consortium, was appointed chief executive shortly after the consortium bought the club.
Davies had originally formed a small consortium and his own rescue package when he heard Leicester City was collapsing under debts of £30m. Later, he decided to link up with the Lineker consoritum.
Davies explained: ‘Gary was putting together a consortium called New Fox plc, so it made sense for us to work together.
‘I was born in Leicestershire and went to my first match with my father, who was a season ticket holder, when I was five years old. Helping my favourite club get back into the black will be a huge and exciting challenge.
