Mark Palios (born 9 November 1952 in Birkenhead) is an English chartered accountant, football administrator and former professional footballer.

Palios played in the Football League as a midfielder for Tranmere Rovers and Crewe Alexandra,[1] and in non-league football and in the European Cup-Winners' Cup for Welsh club Bangor City.[2] Following a successful career as a chartered accountant with Arthur Young and PriceWaterhouseCoopers, specialising in business turnaround,[3] he became the Football Association's Chief Executive in July 2003.[2] He resigned in August 2004 following media revelations around sexual relationships between a Football Association secretary, Faria Alam, and both Palios and England football team manager Sven-Göran Eriksson.[4][2] He then returned to work as a consultant in the business-turnaround sphere and until January 2009 was a non-executive director of AdEPT Telecom.[5]
