The FAI have hired recruitment firm Amrop to aid in their search for an independent non-executive chairperson and three non-executive directors to join the association's new board.

At the AGM in Trim last weekend, eight men were elected to serve on the board. Re-elected FAI president Donal Conway was joined by new vice president Paul Cooke, Martin Heraghty (Sligo Rovers) and Dick Shakespeare (UCD) took up the League of Ireland seats, with John Finnegan and Dave Moran voted in from amateur football, John Earley returning under the schoolboys/schoolgirls heading and Joe O'Brien from the Colleges FAI representing a new parish of smaller affiliates.

The FAI are now looking to appoint an independent non-executive chairperson and three additional independent non-executive directors.

These positions will be publicly advertised in Friday’s Irish Times, the Sunday Business Post and the Sunday Independent over this coming weekend.

Amrop advises the world’s most dynamic organisations on identifying and positioning Leaders For What’s Next – adept at working across borders, in markets around the world. With 76 offices in 49 countries, Amrop is one of the world’s largest executive search firms.
