We are pleased to announce the appointment of Rick Parry as an ambassador to Office Privée. Rick trained as a chartered accountant and his most interesting assignment, which spanned some five years, was dealing with Manchester’s bid for the 1996 Olympic Games. Whilst Manchester did not win the Games, the bidding process helped to put the city on the sporting map and led to the creation of world-class facilities including the Etihad Stadium.
Rick has also worked with The Football Association advising it in relation to its re-structure, and was asked to be CEO of the Football League. In 1997 Rick took up the role of CEO for Liverpool Football Club and saw it win ten trophies including the UEFA Champions League in 2005.
In 2008 the University of Liverpool awarded Rick an honorary doctorate for his services to the City of Liverpool.
Since leaving Liverpool in 2009, Rick has carried out a variety of football-related consultancy projects in the Middle East, the USA and Mexico. He brought Saudi investment into the New York Cosmos where he now sits on the board and has developed contacts and opportunities in other global sporting events including F1.
