Here’s a list of Arsenal directors who have served since 1946. The just retired PH-W is the longest-serving by some distance at 51 years, with Robert Bellinger in second place with 36. Peter’s father, Denis Hill-Wood, managed 33 years, though Ken Friar will overtake him if he stays till 2017.
At the other end, in a blow for lovers of equality the shortest-serving director is the only female Board member Arsenal have ever had, Lady Nina, with just three years.
Richard Carr served 28 years before leaving the Arsenal Holdings PLC Board on 2009, but he remains a board member of Arsenal Football Club Ltd. His presence is the only difference between the two boards.
