Johnson leaves Owls board

Sheffield Wednesday director Mark Johnson has stepped down from

his position on the club’s board.

Johnson, who worked with Owls chairman Milan Mandaric during

their days at Leicester, joined the board at Hillsborough in

September 2011.

“After over a year of 400-mile weekly round trips and living in

hotels, I have decided to return back to the south coast and spend

more time with my family,” Johnson said. “I wish everyone at the

club good luck for the future.”

Mandaric added: “Mark’s contribution to the club has proved

invaluable since he joined just over a year ago.

“He leaves Sheffield Wednesday with our sincere thanks and very

best wishes for the future.”
