A technology investor and entrepreneur is now the official owner of Wycombe Wanderers, the club have confirmed.

In the evening of Saturday, May 4, one week after the league season ended, the Adams Park side released an official statement confirming that Mikheil Lomtadze’s company, Blue Ocean Partners, owns 90 per cent of the club.

The Georgian joins the club’s board alongside Eduard Vyshnyakov and Dan Rice.

Wanderers’ previous owners, the Couhig family, had been with the Buckinghamshire-based team since 2019 before officially taking over in February 2020.

In that time, they helped Wycombe reach three Wembley finals, secure a season in the Championship, and provide a development system which was produced names such as Anis Mehmeti, Chris Forino and Ali Al-Hamadi.

Rob Couhig, the club’s CEO, announced his intention to sell the club in the summer of 2023, with the move being confirmed tonight [May 4].

The American businessman and lawyer told the club’s website: “I am excited for the future of Wycombe Wanderers.

“Last year, I announced that I had begun looking at a possible succession plan for our ownership.

"Since then, I met with a significant number of well-qualified people.

"Last fall, Mikheil and I met and decided to explore his potential role with the club.

“It was apparent from that first meeting that Mikheil and I shared similar values of speaking directly and honestly with each other.

"I came to understand that his goals for the Club were similar to mine.

“Important to me, although often separated by a 12-hour time difference, we became friends.

"The logical conclusion to those discussions culminated today [May 4] with the transfer of Feliciana EFL Limited to his company.

“The Board of Wycombe Wanderers Football Club will have three new directors, Mikheil, Eduard Vyshnyakov, and Daniel Rice.

“The Board has asked me to convey its and the Wanderers family’s appreciation for the great work that Missy Couhig and Pete Couhig have done for the Club and community since June 2019.

"As for me, Mikheil has asked and I have agreed to continue as Chairman during the transition of ownership.

“Please join me in welcoming Mikheil, Eduard and Dan to the Club.”

Lomtadze, Vyshnyakov and Rice have all been appointed as directors of the club, whilst Couhig will be continuing as a Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Specifically, Vyshnyakov will ‘help the board with financial controls and planning of the club’, whilst Rice will take up the position of Chief Football Officer, ‘reporting directly to the Club’s Board of Directors.’
