Brady named in business list top 20

By: Staff Writer


West Ham vice chair Karren Brady has been named as one of the top 20 most influential people in football business.

FC Business magazine today released their list of the 100 most inflential people in football business since 2004 in order to celebrate their 100th edition. And West Ham Board member Brady is the highest place woman on the list, having been ranked at #17 by the magazine.




"The #fcbusiness100 is a list of the people who have made a lasting contribution to football over the last 13 years," read a press release. "Compiled by the writers and editor of fcbusiness magazine the list shows the depth and diversity of figures that have graced the game - some for good reasons, others for bad reasons."

FC Business editor Aaron Gourley added: "Football has changed dramatically since fcbusiness was first published in 2004. The #fcbusiness100 most influential people is a snap shot of some of the figures that have shaped the game in one way or another. Without these people football would not have developed the way it has."

Topping the list is Premier League executive Richard Scudamore, closely followed by disgraced former FIFA chief Sepp Blatter and UEFA's Michel Platini. Other names to be linked with West Ham are agent Kia Joorabchian (#43), Mike Newell (whistleblower) and Thomas Hitzlsperger (#97).
