Cardiff City CEO To Step Down

Tue 2nd Oct 2012 | Football Club Management

Cardiff City Football Club have confirmed that Alan Whiteley will be stepping down from his role as Chief Executive in the coming weeks.

His position at Cardiff City Stadium will be filled by Simon Lim, who will take over the reins as acting CEO for the months ahead following a handover period.

The decision to introduce a new CEO has been reached in light of that substantial commitment from Tan Sri Vincent Tan and Cardiff City Chairman Dato Chan Tien Ghee, both of whom having expressed a desire to have a greater degree of control and involvement over the day to day running of the club. Simon Lim's appointment is seen to be the best means to achieve this with stability now having been achieved off the field.

Alan Whiteley has been asked to remain on the board of directors to ensure a smooth transition at the club, while long term senior financial accountant Richard Thompson will also take on the role of Financial Director in an initial acting capacity.

Tan Sri Vincent Tan spoke of the senior back-office changes, saying, "I would like to place on record my thanks and respect to Alan for the way in which he has held the office with dignity over the last year.

"His professionalism and hard work has helped to improve club operations behind the scenes, and from here, with the hard work of a number of key people we will look to build on his legacy in the months and years ahead. All connected to Cardiff City Football Club owe Alan a debt of gratitude as he leaves his post with our sincere best wishes."
