A FORMER chief executive of Sheffield United, Charles Green is now the chief executive of The Rangers Football Club.
The 58-year-old venture capitalist heads up a consortium made up of investors from all over the world.
But his own business credentials remain obscure. Records held by Companies House reveal that nine of the companies Mr Green has been involved with in the past have been dissolved, while he has a track record of moving very quickly between posts.
He has resigned a total of 31 different appointments during his career, and is currently director of London-registered Sevco 5088 Ltd. Mr Green is also a non-executive chairman at Nova Resources Limited, an investment company incorporated in Bermuda which operates mainly in Singapore and Mongolia. Other past appointments include chairmanships of a London-based construction services firm and a directorial position at medical research firm Source BioScience Plc.
Born in Ayrshire, Mr Murray, 55, was educated at Strathclyde University and has spent most of his career managing some of the UK's biggest pension funds, mainly with Phillips and Drew.
A statement released by the club yesterday said that he had had experience in football through his purchase and stewardship of a "25% shareholding in Manchester United" and that he had worked closely with the executive management team.
Mr Murray is also senior independent director of MWB business Exchange plc, and prior to that had 31 years' experience in investment management.
He says he is a Rangers season ticket holder and started supporting the club as a boy, becoming "hooked" after watching Colin Stein score a hat-trick the first time he visited Ibrox.
He has promised to deliver a transparent long-term strategy for the club while maintaining "high standards of corporate governance".
A director of Manchester-based investment firm Zeus Capital, he joins the new Rangers company as finance director.
Little is known about Mr Stockbridge, but he is said to have joined the company in January this year, and he specialises in advising executives on takeovers and mergers, and with raising funds for investment.
Before joining Zeus capital, he worked in the City for 15 years as an advisor to Grant Thornton, Noble & Company and Allenby Capital.
The financier was also trained at The Panel on Takeovers & Mergers, where he was the primary case officer on more than 150 offer transactions ranging in size from £1m to over £1bn.
Imran Ahmad also works at Zeus Capital and was previously described as a "financial adviser" to the consortium led by Mr Green.
Mr Ahmad, who appeared alongside the new Rangers CEO at a hastily called press conference at Ibrox yesterday, is an expert in raising investment. According to the company's website, he only joined Zeus capital in April, and was previously an investment broker.
In September 2008 he founded Allenby Capital Limited, which grew from nothing to have 40 major clients by the time he sold his stake in September 2011.
He is said to have advised on investments in the resource, energy, engineering and technology sectors.
