Director of Football/Cambridge United Community Trust Chairman
Graham joined the board in June 2013 in his capacity as Chair of the Cambridge United Youth and Community Trust.
Graham initially joined Cambridge United as a player in the early 1980s, moving from Cardiff City in his native Wales. He subsequently played for, and managed, Cambridge City and Histon and has been very involved in Cambridgeshire and East Anglian football management for many years.
Since 2002, Graham has been the General Director of Christians in Sport.
On his appointment to the United Board, he said, 'It's an honour to join the leadership team of this marvellous club. I will try to play my part in making the city of Cambridge proud of our football club both in the way it performs on the pitch and in the impact it makes on our wider community.'
A U's fan for over 50 years, Renford brings a wealth of commercial experience to the board from his role as chairman for the Premier Travel Group; an International Travel Company that employs over 200 people in the Cambridge area.
He has been active in the Cambridge area for a long time, and has been a Holidays and Travel presenter for BBC Radio Cambridge for nearly 20 years. Renford is also a keen golfer, and has been a member at Gog Magog Golf Club for 35 years.
Renford said: "People and their cultures are my greatest interest so to travel the world for a living and support the U's has given me a fortunate life.
"I found that most would rather talk football than hotel contracts and it's no surprise that there are now U's fans in some of the worlds more remote places!"
