Blackburn Rovers’ Managing Director Tom Finn has decided to leave the club after 15 years. Finn was a popular figure at Ewood Park and was recently voted Club Man of the Year by the Blackburn Rovers Disabled Supporters’ Association.
The news comes just months after long-serving chairman John Williams also stood down from his role, following the takeover by Venky’s. Although the Indian owners have yet to announce a replacement for Williams, they did recently draft in a new deputy Chief Executive – Paul Hunt.
Finn said: “Whilst sad to be moving on, I believe the time is right for me and the Club. The owners are putting in place their plans for how the Club is to operate going forward, such as the appointment of Paul Hunt who joins the Club this week. “
He added: “Blackburn Rovers might not enjoy the fanbase of some of its Premier League rivals, but no one should doubt the supporters’ passion and commitment for their club.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of that for the past 15 years, have had fantastic support from the staff at Ewood Park and Brockhall and wish the owners and everyone associated with Blackburn Rovers all success in the future.”
