Not actually announced on the club's website; and not yet listed on the Club's Staff Directory - but yesterday's match programme notes from Chairman Gianni Paladini announced that the club had appointed three new (non-executive) Directors.
The three new people are: Nick De Marco, whose joining the Board has been rumoured on the fan messageboards for the past couple of weeks. De Marco is a fan and messageboard poster - and a barrister who for the last couple of years has been the club's voluntary "Legal Advisor."
The other two Directors are Kevin Steele and Jason Kallis both of the law firm Mishcon de Reya . Exactly why these two specific people have been invited to join the Board is not really clear, although there is of course messsageboard speculation.
The Mishcon de Reya profile of Kevin Steele says "Partner "Expertise - "Kevin specialises in advising property investors and developers, professional construction consultants and contractors on all issues relating to building and engineering contracts and ancillary documentation, together with advice on other areas relating to construction matters, such as party walls, insurance and environmental issues. He also assists clients in dispute resolution and is experienced in bringing and defending claims in the Technology and Construction Court, in arbitrations, adjudications and mediations." Steele
The profile of the other new director, Jason Khallis simply lists him "Position: Solicitor - Profile
The three new Directors join Chairman, Gianni Paladini; QPR Holdings Chairman Antonio Caliendo along with Franco Zanotti and Olga Paladini.
