Episode notes

In this episode of In The Boardroom, a brand new podcast series from The Athletic, Jacqui Oatley speaks to Preeti Shetty, a non-executive member of the board at Premier League side Brentford F.C.

Preeti was one of two people hired by Brentford to join their board in a process that was open to all comers, a relatively rare thing in the world of football boardrooms.

Preeti tells us about her career working to use the power of sport for good: whether that’s in her work as CEO of data company Upshot or in her new role with Brentford.

We also discussed what the process was like to become a director, how the first six months of life in the boardroom is treating her, including that magical opening day win over Arsenal, as well as much more. 

In The Boardroom from The Athletic is presented by Jacqui Oatley and is produced by Steve Hankey.
