Mike Garlick has been invited onto a select panel to help with the appointment of the next Premier League Chief Executive.
The Clarets’ Chairman will form part of the Premier League Remuneration Board, alongside Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck and Leicester City CEO Susan Wheelan.
The main function of the Board is to determine the remuneration and appointment of senior Premier League executives, but they will also meet to interview for Richard Scudamore’s replacement as head of the organisation.
Mr Garlick said: “I am delighted and consider it a great honour to be invited to join the Premier League Renumeration Board.
“The Board’s work is wide-ranging and, in tandem, I hope I can play a part in securing a worthy successor to Richard, who has done a magnificent job as head of the Premier League for almost 20 years.”
