Meet The First Ever Female On The Chelsea FC Board


On Saturday ,June
15 ,Roman Abramovich’s right-hand woman became the first and only ever female
to be appointed to Chelsea’s executive board. Marina Granovskaia took up
the influential role today after years of being a key player behind the scenes.
Joining the likes
of Karren Brady and Carolyn Radford – Granovskaia is now in the top five of a
small select group of women who hold powerful positions within the world of
Her role at the
club has been expanding in recent years and she has been attending board
meetings in an unofficial capacity, as well as acting as a transfer broker.
Since 2010,  She has also been spotted at the training
ground and speaks to senior players to canvass their opinion on key issues. Her
appointment to the Chelsea board will not change the way things operate at
Stamford Bridge, merely formalise the structure.
Granovskaia has
been playing a de facto chief of staff role to Abramovich across many of his
business interests. She was once described as arguably the most powerful
presence at the club.
Russian-Canadian has been employed by Abramovich for 17 years, and will now
become one of the most highly-placed women working in English football.
She started out
working for his Sibneft oil company after graduating from Moscow State
University in 1997 and will now join chairman Bruce Buck, CEO Ron Gourlay, and
director Eugene Tenenbaum.
Granovskaia’s appointment to the board has long been in the
pipeline and has not occurred sooner because of the arrival of the new Chelsea
was involved in the deals to bring David Luiz and Fernando Torres to the club
in January 2011.
with Tenenbaum, another Russian-Canadian, Granovskaia has the speediest access to
Abramovich. This means that when Abramovich is not easy to contact for
other board members – i.e. when away on other business – she will still be
able to pass on messages from them.
