Everton have announced Marcel Brands to the Toffees board after being the Director of Football in June 2018 following his time at PSV Eindhoven in his homeland.
Brands said: “It gives me a lot of confidence that I’m a Board member now and I hope to do the best for our Club.
“Being at Everton has been even better than I thought it would be. I was working at a great club in Holland and was happy there but it was a great chance for me to come to the Premier League and join Everton.
“At the start I had a great feeling but it’s been a better feeling working here. I work with a lot of great people with blue blood and I’m confident we can achieve many good things in the future.”
Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright added: “I think we’ve got a great Director of Football who has taken over and changed an awful lot. He has totally reorganised our scouting, he wants our kids to play the same as Marco’s first team and we are really happy with the team we have got. Marcel is terrific to work with. We really feel secure with Marco and Marcel. They won’t sign anyone who they don’t think will improve us.”
