United strengthened their off-the-field management team with the appointment of Andy Birks as Chief Operating Officer on Monday and Kevin McCabe spoke to the media shortly after the news was confirmed.
On Andy, who is well-known the McCabe family, Kevin commented: "Andy is a lad I've known for some time and is best known to my younger son Simon. He works out of London as Andy has for a number of years.
"He has a very interesting background, working nationally and internationally in a number of sectors including retail, distribution, property and most recently IT."
The Blades co-owner added: "Andy is a Yorkshireman, a season ticket holder and a Sheffield United supporter, along with his dad who lives in Nether Edge.
"Taking all those factors into account has helped him understand the club before he walked through the door for his first day."
