Earlier this year Brentford FC appointed Preeti Shetty as one of two new Independent Non-Executive Directors. Preeti - and Deji Davies - were appointed in August after Brentford advertised for a new representative to join the Board of Directors. The Club had initially intended to appoint one Director but took the decision to appoint two after a rigorous process and Preeti became the only British South Asian woman in a Premier League Board Room.
Preeti was in attendance at the Asian Sports List awards last month. The event celebrated the achievements of Asian people in sport and was covered by Sky Sports News. Preeti spoke about how South Asian people are represented in football.
