Leeds United Appoint New Chairman in Boardroom Shake-Up

Mon 1st Jul 2013 | Clubs Ownership

A major restructuring of the Leeds United board has seen Salah Nooruddin installed as Chairman.

The changes announced today by GFH Capital, majority shareholders in Leeds United FC, also sees David Haigh, Deputy CEO of GFH Capital, become Managing Director whilst Shaun Harvey, who has been CEO since 2004, steps down from this position. 

Mr. Haigh has been a regular figure at Elland Road since GFH Capital finalised its acquisition of Leeds United in 2012. As a Director, he was instrumental in the introduction of many new initiatives. His role as Managing Director will see him responsible for the day-to-day running of the club.

Commenting on the changes, Salah Nooruddin, who moves up from his previous role as Vice Chairman of Leeds United, said: "We are pleased to welcome David Haigh to his new role. He and I will continue to work with the rest of the Board, the management team, Brian McDermott and his team to build the foundations on and off the pitch for a successful future for Leeds United.

"At the same time we extend our thanks to Shaun for his services to the club over the past nine years, Shaun will remain as a director of the club to offer us his considerable footballing experience. He has always given strong leadership to the football club in what have been often been challenging times."

David Haigh said: "I look forward to my new role and continuing to work with everyone at the club to help create, with the support of the owners, the long term and sustainable success which Leeds United's great past merits.

"We are at a time in the development of the club when we have to balance immediate ambition against our long term strategy for success. We have an excellent Manager in Brian McDermott and I am confident that by working as a team we can achieve our aims."
