Tottenham have revealed that Jonathan Turner has joined the club as a non-executive director, with the technology and finance specialist starting his role with immediate effect (THFC).
Turner is the co-founder of the investment bank, Qatalyst Partners, and a former advisor on technology and finance to the UK government.
The finance and technology specialist also has previous experience in dealing with large companies having dealt with Microsoft and Amazon to name just a few.
Daniel Levy has hailed the new appointment for his ‘wealth of international business experience, predominantly in the increasingly critical technology sector’.
The statement from the club claims that Turner grew up in North London and, despite living across the globe in recent times, has supported Spurs for over 40 years.
“Mr Turner holds a number of board positions, including current Chair of the Investment Committee of Magdalen College, Oxford. He spends his time between London and San Francisco and has been a Spurs fan for over 40 years,” the statement read.
Spurs recently took out a £175m bank loan as a result of the estimated £200m loss due to the coronavirus pandemic (BBC).

It seems as if Daniel Levy has got the person he wanted for this role. However, let’s hope this is not the only signing of the summer. Given recent developments in revealing the £175M bank loan, it makes sense for the club to bring in someone with such a wealth of experience to help the club as they try to navigate these difficult circumstances.
