Amanda Louise Staveley is a famous British business executive and co-owner of the English club Newcastle United. Her relationship with Middle Eastern financiers is what makes her stand out most.

Amanda helped a Saudi consortium take over Newcastle United in a deal completed in October 2021. Also, in 2007, she was involved in a failed attempt by Dubai International Capital to buy a 49% stake in Liverpool FC.

Staveley left her degree at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, after suffering from stress following the death of her grandfather. 

Then, Amanda started her business with borrowed £180,000, buying a restaurant and stocks in 1996. Today, the business magnate has an estimated net worth of $170 million.

The power couple had not one but two marriage ceremonies at Buckinghamshire and West Wycombe Park. They celebrated the occasion with only 500 guests, including their family, close ones, and VIPs from different fields.

In just less than 2 weeks of joining the platform, Amanda has amassed more than 55k followers.
