FC Internazionale Milano President, Erick Thohir has announced the appointment of Michael Bolingbroke as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Club.

48 year old Bolingbroke will join Inter in August after having completed his stint as Chief Operating Officer for the Premier League side Manchester United.

"I am very excited to bring a leader of Michael's expertise and stature to our club," said Inter President Thohir.

"Michael has my complete faith, trust and confidence. He is the perfect person to execute the vision shared by the Moratti family and myself of Inter as a truly global brand. I look forward to working with him as we build a foundation for future success."

Bolingbroke’s focus will include implementing best practices in the industry, increasing the reach and depth of penetration of the Inter brand globally, and improving engagement with fans.

Bolingbroke joins the strong management team at Inter that includes Managing Director Marco Fassone, Vice President Angelomario Moratti and Vice President Javier Zanetti, together with Michael Williamson, Piero Ausilio and Giorgio Ricci.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be offered this opportunity”, said Bolingbroke. “Inter is one of the strongest brands in football with a heritage to match. I can’t wait to get started and look forward to working alongside the management team in place.”

At Manchester United, Bolingbroke was responsible for ticketing, hospitality, match and non-matchday operations, club secretarial functions, property management and corporate services including finance, human resources, legal and information technology.

He was also a board member of MUTV, the club’s TV channel, and a trustee on the Board of the Club’s Pension Fund. In addition, Bolingbroke was on the Board of Manchester United Limited’s joint venture partnership with Nike. He was also Chairman of the Club’s charitable Foundation.
