Brendan Flood has spoken of his delight at returning to the Burnley Boardroom.
The Rossendale businessman rejoined the Board of Directors 14-months after standing down from his role as Joint Operational Director for personal reasons.
Mr Flood said: “I am delighted to be back and I want to just focus on the football club and do my bit as a fan and as a director.
“I think I have probably learnt a lot through all the years I have been operationally involved and the Board is bigger now, which is something I’m glad has happened.
“We have two more directors and I think there’s a bigger spread of knowledge and skills around the table, which I think is a positive.
“The mix involves people who are from wider backgrounds, both working in London and internationally, so there’s lots of different viewpoints that can make things happen.”
Mr Flood becomes the seventh member of the new-look Board of Directors, which now comprises Co-Chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick, along with Clive Holt, Barry Kilby, Brian Nelson and Terry Crabb.
He added: “It’s becoming more and more scarce to see a club with home-grown directors, but I think we’ve got a strong sense of identity at Burnley and we’ve got to try and preserve that in an ever-changing sporting world.
“We need to remain competitive, so we’ve got to embrace the ideas that come from other clubs, but at the same time try and preserve our identity as much as possible.”
