West Ham vice chair Karren Brady's burgeoning personal portfolio continues to grow with the news that she has been hired as a non-executive director by entertainment company SyCo.

Brady, who was awarded a CBE for 'services to entrepreneurship and women in business' in the 2014 New Year Honours list already has a number of business interests outside of West Ham United, where she has been vice chair since David Sullivan and David Gold purchased the club in January 2010.

Last weekend it was revealed that Ms Brady, who is also the Government's Small Business Ambassador has taken on the additional role with TV tycoon Simon Cowell's company in order to advise on strategy.

SyCo, a joint venture between Cowell and publishing giant Sony Entertainment are behind two of the world's most popular light entertainment franchises, the TV series' The X Factor and ...Got Talent.

The former chairman of Birmingham City also returns to our TV screens later this month as sidekick to Alan Sugar in long-running TV series the Apprentice. Later this year, the Conservative Party Life Peer is set to be inducted into the House of Lords as Baroness Brady.
