Purslow takes on Everton ‘consultant’ role
Sources close to The Blue Union have confirmed that former Liverpool managing director, Christian Purslow, has become a ‘consultant’ of Everton Football Club as Bill Kenwright tries valiantly to sell the club.
The 48-year-old left his post as managing director of Liverpool in February 2011 following the club’s £300m sale to New England Sports Ventures (NESV) in October 2010.
Purslow, a fluent Spanish speaker and Anfield season ticket holder, joined Liverpool in June 2009 – succeeding chief executive Rick Parry.
He is a Cambridge graduate with an MBA from Harvard Business School and is also an executive board member and co-founder of private equity firm MidOcean Partners.
