Paul Barber has been with Albion since 2012.

Chief executive and deputy chairman Paul Barber will represent the Premier League on both The FA Council and Professional Game Board for the 2021/22 campaign.

It will be Barber's fourth consecutive season as a Premier League representative on The FA Council and Professional Game Board (PGB), both of which shape and provide governance for football in England. 

Barber was previously elected to the FA Council and PGB by EFL Championship clubs for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, and he will therefore soon commence a sixth season of service in these roles since returning to English football from MLS club Vancouver Whitecaps FC nine years ago.

Albion chairman Tony Bloom said, “As we have been with every year that Paul has been elected, we’re incredibly proud to see him held in such high regard by those at the top of English football.

“A fourth consecutive season as a Premier League representative underlines the success he has had as our club’s chief executive and deputy chairman since joining us in 2012.

“It also reaffirms his professional standing amongst the other clubs in the Premier League, and clearly demonstrates their faith in his ability and understanding of the game.”

Barber added, “I am delighted and honoured to serve on The FA Council and Professional Game Board on behalf of Premier League clubs, and look forward to representing all clubs in our division as well as the interests of the wider game.”
