Alex Horne, last year’s winner of the Accountancy Age Personality of
the Year Award, has been made COO of the Football Association assuming many of
the responsibilities of the chief executive Brian Barwick, who leaves his post
at the end of the year.

Horne was finance director at the FA before joining Wembley Stadium where he
resolved the crisis over the project’s funding and became managing director.

Commentators have described Horne as the new right hand man of Lord Triesman,
the FA chairman who is described as being responsible for the departure of
current CEO Barwick.

Horne was responsible for negotiating a new deal with Wembley’s builders
Multiplex after a host of difficulties with the contractor had delayed
completion of the venue.
