Man Utd looks to net new FD

Mixing business with pleasure is something we are all warned against. But for Man Utd-supporting accountants, that particular maxim today went out of the window.

The richest club in the world has begun the search for a new finance director, and if the popularity of the club is anything to go by, there will be plenty of applicants.

Former FD David Gill was elevated to deputy chief executive a year ago. But yesterday Manchester United announced Gill was on the move again – this time to become group managing director.

The Old Trafford giant said it now wanted to appoint an FD to allow Gill to focus on managing the day-to-day operations of the company.

Previously he worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers from 1979 until 1986. Gill was FD at First Choice Holidays until 1997 when he joined Man Utd.

United’s hunt begins straight away and the club said it wanted an ‘experienced and exceptional finance professional’.
