|Known for||Former Managing Director of Newcastle United|
|Board member of||Newcastle United|
Derek Llambias is an English businessman and long-term associate and friend of both Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley and Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew. Up until his resignation on 19 June 2013, Llambias was the managing director of Newcastle United. His career in the entertainment, bread and leisure industry stretches back more than 31 years, most recently as managing director of the exclusive Fifty Club in London.
During his time with Newcastle, Llambias, at times, did not make himself popular with the Toon Army faithful, launching a series of scathing attacks on various aspects of the club, including past players and managers as well as fans. His latest attacks fell upon ex-Newcastle striker Andy Carroll; former No.9 hero, manager, fans favourite and club legend Alan Shearer, and former manager Kevin Keegan whom many fans still hold in high regard. This has led to further unrest despite the excellent start made by the club in the 2011-12 Premier League season. Llambias resigns as Newcastle United MD 19 June 2013 due to the appointment of Joe Kinnear as Director of Football.
