Billionaire Tottenham owner Joe Lewis ceases to be ‘a person with significant control’ over the club


Billionaire Joe Lewis has ceased to be “a person of significant control” over Tottenham Hotspur following what the club described as a “reorganization of the Lewis Family Trusts”, which own Spurs shares.

An update published by Companies House revealed that Lewis ceased to be a Person of Significant Control (PSC) over the club on October 5.

On the same day, Bryan Antoine Glinton, a Bahamas-based lawyer, and Katie Louise Booth were appointed PSC at Tottenham Hotspur Limited.

Glinton, whose LinkedIn page describes him as “Partner at Glinton Sweeting O’Brien Chair, Private Client Group”, is believed to be one of two executives of the Lewis Family Trusts which owns Spurs shares. The other unnamed officer also became a new PSC in the club.

A Spurs spokesperson said: “Tottenham Hotspur Limited (the ‘Company’) has filed changes to its Register of Persons in Significant Control (PSC) following a reorganization of the Lewis Family Trusts. The new PSCs of the company are the leaders of the family discretionary trust.”

Spurs insisted the move would have no impact on the club, which continues to be owned by chairman Daniel Levy and Lewis.

Lewis turned 85 in February and is based in the Bahamas.

He is not involved in the day-to-day running of Tottenham but over the summer ENIC Group, the majority-owned company by Lewis which has a majority stake in the club, pumped £150m into Spurs by issuing new shares.

A CSP is defined as a person who “has the right to exercise significant influence or control over the activities of a trust, and the trustees of that trust own, directly or indirectly, more than 50% but less than 75% shares of the company”.
