Birmingham International Holdings Announce New Directors

Birmingham International Holdings today announced the appointment of a new executive director and two new independent non executive directors.

The announcement made to the stock exchange confirms Panagiotis Pavlakis has been appointed as an executive director. Mr Pavlakis is a former investment banker with experience in raising capital.

The announcement also confirms to new independent non executive directors,  Liu Enxue and Li Hanguo. Both Mr Liu and Mr Li are members of the Communist Party of China, with Mr Li having experience in oil exploration.

    Mr Pavlakis should have a word with the owner of Asia Rays. They might be okay for the odd million

  • RVH1T says:

    The Peoples Republic team is almost a reality! A combination of them and a Greek banker is just what we need.

  • Dino Tiltoni says:

    Hope this doesn’t mean we are at the risk of playing in red!

  • Peoples Republic of Finlan says:

    Wont they resign 2 days later thats what happened last time an annoucement like this was made

  • Jaffa says:

    Al,do you think these appointments are to either help keep the club or to sell!

  • Chris W says:

    Any investment has to be a good thing, wasn’t CY trying to bring in people from China before he was arrested?
    On a sour note does this mean that CY is still trying to keep hold of BCFC rather than looking for potential buyers.

  • StevieW says:

    There is the mention of oil exploration again, don’t be surprised when they dump us after all the money has gone and get themselves a hard hat and a Red adaire and go in search of the black gold.

    • RichardM says:

      Or maybe they’ve heard rumours there’s an oil reservoir hidden under St Andrews!

      • StaffsBlue says:

        Only thing under there… is Barry Fry’s pee. Considering they’re adept at taking the p1$$, they’re welcome to it. :-)

  • Oldbluenose says:

    Daniel;, Does this indicate that C,Y. does intend to keep th club if his trial allows him too, ?.

  • mrbluesky says:

    Three more mouths to feed. The BIHL board is in danger of being bigger that the playing staff at Stans.

  • Owen says:

    As a trainee accountant may I just point out that non execs have NO power on how the business is run. They are merely there to make sure the execs (ie Pannu) are looking after the shareholders (ie Yeung and others) interests and not using the company as a their own piggy bank. On the whole it may be a good thing as long as they are ‘independant’.

  • Owen says:

    And non execs do get a fee for attending board meetings – but not a set salary

    give it next season and were be deep in the red and playing in red ” come on you reds”
    looks the song for next season and a new nickname ” the reds” and a new ground name
    st lenins……when you think things couldnt get any worse weve got commies on boad….
    …..you couldnt make it up could you …please end this nightmare.KRO.

  • RichardM says:

    Does make you think though – what’s in it for Mr Pavlakis? Last thing we need is another Pannu to bite another big chunk out of dwindling resources…

  • DoctorD says:

    Well at least the new guy has a link with Brum:

    Mr. Pavlakis, aged 37, holds a Master of Science Degree in Investment and Finance awarded by
    Middlesex University in London, UK in 2001, while he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer
    Science from Aston University of Birmingham, UK in 1999. Mr. Pavlakis has more than 10 years
    working experience in Financial Industry in both Cities of London and Hong Kong.

  • Poppa999 says:

    All sounds a bit positive! Where’s the catch?

    Seems we should play in red away. We can’t win playing in Blue!!

  • sappy dad says:

    the way i see it is that many billionaires are into oil .so one
    director signed up knows them ….another director signed
    up.knows about banking and tax relief .he also knows how to
    raise money from the wealthy ..it
    sounds plausible ….if you
    cant get people with money in the club.then you get people in
    to the club that can get money out of people and into the club

  • Mickey07 says:

    Hi, when you say Mr Li has experience in oil exploration, do you know if he found any or is the experience gained by looking for it. Tis the season to be jolly, kro

  • Aussiebrum says:

    Dan, respectfully, while the non executive directors are not currently being paid they might and will be into the future.

    Having been a non executive director myself, it’s a role with liabilities you would only assume for appropriate remuneration.

    • almajir says:

      Equally respectfully Aussiebrum – I can’t comment too much but I wouldn’t bank on ANY directors barring PP being paid…

  • mark says:
