Who is David Bernstein?

David Alan Bernstein CBE is a British business executive who is the chairman of the British Red Cross and was the former chairman of French Connection.

A Chartered Accountant by profession, Bernstein has also been involved in the footballing world and was the chairman of Manchester City F.C. from 1998 to 2003, a period of revival and stability in the club's 130 year history and is generally held in high regard by Manchester City supporters for helping to pull the club out of its nadir.

Bernstein is also President of Level Playing Field and Chair of the Centre for Access to Football in Europe. He has been chairman of Wembley Stadium Limited since July 2008, during which he has renegotiated the £341m loan that has ensured the stadium's financial future would be more manageable.

Bernstein has been the FA chairman since January 2011 and was selected as Lord Triesman's replacement by the FA Council in December 2010. He has since revealed his main priorities as chairman were reducing dissent and increasing respect in English football, establishing closer links with FIFA to gain greater influence in international football and enforcing a fairer playing field financially.
