Crean to leave Jockey Club

22 January 2013

THE Jockey Club has announced its finance director Andrew Crean is to leave the group this year to join the Football Association..

Crean is to take the position of group chief financial officer at the FA from the end of April. He follows the path from racing to football last taken by former BHA chief executive Nic Coward, who is now general secretary at the Premier League.

Crean will continue in his current role until April and will oversee the completion of a number of projects, including the annual audit of the Jockey Club’s 2012 accounts.

He said yesterday: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of joining the FA at an important time for the organisation and in its 150th anniversary year.
“The journey the Jockey Club is on commercially is something I’ve really enjoyed being part of. It’s also important to racing and something the sport can be
proud of because, despite the economic climate, today the Jockey Club is putting more back into British racing than ever before.”
