Burnley Football Club appoint new CEO

Wed 7th Dec 2011 | Football Club Management

Burnley Football Club have today announced the appointment of Lee Hoos as Chief Executive.

The 50 year old American and former Leicester City and Southampton Chief Executive, who also served on the board at Fulham under Mohamed Al Fayed, will take up his position on Tuesday, December 13.

Hoos replaces Paul Fletcher at Turf Moor said of his appointment, “It’s a privilege to be named as Chief Executive of Burnley Football Club and I am absolutely delighted to be joining a club that, in my opinion, is going places.

“Burnley has an excellent Board of Directors and, as a long standing admirer, a very, very good manager in Eddie Howe. 

“I know the people - and Chairman Barry Kilby in particular - because I have been in football here for a while now and when I heard about the opportunity to work here it was a chance I couldn’t pass up.

“I come here with high hopes and the number one priority has to be to get this club back into the Premier League.

“That’s the shared vision of everybody at the club and in my opinion everybody has a part to play.

“Burnley has already shown that can be achieved and there is no reason at all why we can’t get back there again.”

Chairman Barry Kilby welcomed Hoos to Turf Moor saying, “I am sure all supporters and staff will join me in welcoming our incoming Chief Executive.

“Lee has previously worked under Mohamed Al Fayed at Fulham, managed during a difficult situation at Southampton and then worked under Milan Mandaric at Leicester.

“Dealing with such varied situations, handing tough financial problems and then working with some very powerful people means he brings a wealth of experience here.

“I have no doubt he will be a big appointment as he carries out the policy of the Board of Directors.”

Kilby also paid tribute to departing Chief Executive Paul Fletcher, “I would like to say a very big thank you to Paul for making such a solid contribution to the club in the past three years.

“He was Chief Executive during momentous times for us and has certainly played his part in a golden era for the club.

“It’s good to know he will still be around until at least the summer, working on several projects.”
