Goldberg steps down for soccer

Goldberg steps down for soccer

MARK GOLDBERG, the founder of MSB, yesterday stepped down from the board of the IT recruitment company in order to concentrate on Crystal Palace FC, the south London football club of which he is chairman.

In March, Mr Goldberg relinquished his joint managing director role in favour of a part-time executive role after investors became increasingly unhappy with his involvement with Crystal Palace. Mr Goldberg has sold a large proportion of his stake in MSB to fund his pounds 22m purchase of the club, which he completed at the beginning of June.
