Related newsJosep Maria Bartomeu has already solved the problems that arose when six managers resigned en bloc two weeks ago and left the Board with only 13 components. The statutes of the club determine that it must be made up of a minimum of 14 members to legitimize all the decisions made in the meetings of the governing body and this noon the necessary number has been reached. During the telematic meeting held by the members of the Board, Bartomeu announced the election of Jaume Carreter as a new member. After announcing his appointment, the Barça directors approved his incorporation, although this decision must be definitively ratified at the next Assembly of Committed Members as set out in the club's statutes. Carreter born in 1960 , has been a member of Barcelona since 2009, with number 104,361, and was until now a member of the Social Commission Responsible for the Amateurs Sections of the club. In addition, he is a founding partner and CEO of Sisquella Solucions Empresarials, a specialized platform in the field of human resources and finance. On the other hand, the Board appointed Dr. Joan Bladé as the director responsible for coordinating all the measures that will be carried out to combat the affectations produced in the club as a consequence of the Covid-19 crisis. Bartomeu's intention is to incorporate a couple of other directors in the coming weeks to form a cohesive directive that will allow him to confidently face the last year in office. Reaching the marked budget and reducing expenses after the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic are the primary objectives of the leader, who wants to leave the next board a healthy entity. In addition, the president intends to invest in the first team with two signings that increase the competitiveness of the squad and the chances of winning the Champions League.
