Mike Ashley's nepotism revealed
Michael Murray, the boyfriend of Mike Ahley's daughter Anna, has been made a director in four of UK tycoon Ashley's companies, The Telegraph reveals.
Murray has been given a property director role at Sports Direct, to oversee the roll out of its fitness superstore brand. He has also been given senior roles at MGM Grand Newcastle Limited, which is linked to Ashley's football team; Mash Services, which shares the same address as Mash Beta, Ashley's personal financial holding company; T&M Leisure Reading, which is believed to be focused on Ashley’s gym ventures; and McGrove Developments, the entrepreneur’s property investment firm, The Telegraph found.
Murray was previously the only director at a company called Central London Projects.
Sports Direct is likely to face scrutiny from the City later this week, when it publishes its half-year results. The company is currently embroiled in a disagreement with Findel, in which it owns an 18.9% stake. Sports Direct wants to install a new director at Findel, but 43% of Findel's shareholders have said they will vote against it.
