Adam Pearson has insisted that his new role at a director at Leeds United FC will not hamper his commitment to his role at Hull FC.
The FC owner was confirmed as being a new director at the soccer club on Monday. He has also been working for Sheffield Wednesday FC in recent times, though his brief spell with the Owls is now over.
“I have continued to be involved with opportunities elsewhere in sport and business, but that changes nothing in terms of my responsibilities and ownership at Hull FC,” Pearson told his club’s official website.
“Joining the board at Leeds United is an exciting prospect and one I’m looking forward to after a number roles in football in the past.
“However, I remain totally committed to Hull FC having made a big commitment and contribution to the club, both emotionally and financially, and look forward to seeing the club continue to grow.
“I remain financially committed to the club for the long term and believe wholeheartedly that the management team I have in place will drive the club forwards, both within performance and administration.”
“I firmly believe they will help demonstrate the club is heading in the right direction and hopefully performances like Sunday’s dramatic win over Warrington are a sign of that progress.”
