Wed 22nd Oct 2014 | Football Club Management

Chelsea Football Club have announced that Ron Gourlay is leaving Chelsea in order to pursue new business opportunities.

Mr Gourlay will leave after 10 successful years at the club including five as Chief Executive.

The club, and in particular the owner and directors, wish to thank Ron for his many years of service to Chelsea and support his desire to seek new challenges. Ron’s efforts have helped the club to achieve its position as one of the leading football clubs in the world.

Pending additional appointments, Chairman Bruce Buck and Director Marina Granovskaia will assume additional executive responsibilities.

Ron said: ‘It has been a privilege to have played a role in the club’s considerable achievements both on and off the pitch over the last 10 years, but I feel the time is right to move on to other challenges.

“I would like to thank Mr Abramovich, the directors, the manager and players and all the staff for their support during my time at the club, and wish them much continued success in the future.’
