QPR Appoints Lee Hoos As CEO

Wed 20th May 2015 | Football Club Management

Queens Park Rangers have appointed Lee Hoos as Chief Executive Officer.

The 53 year-old, who hails from Baltimore, USA, will officially join QPR for the 2015/16 season from Burnley, where he has held the CEO position since December 2011.

QPR Chairman Tony Fernandes believes Hoos’ arrival completes the new-look senior management set-up at the club, commenting: “Lee was the stand-out individual from a very impressive list of candidates we spoke to during an extensive interview process, so I’m delighted he’s accepted the role of CEO.

“He has experience of working in football, which was key. He’s been responsible for creating and implementing strategies across all areas at his previous clubs, as well as overseeing the day-to-day running of the business, so he is exactly what we were looking for.

“With Lee’s arrival this summer, complementing the recent appointments of Chris Ramsey (Head Coach) and Perry Suckling (Academy Manager), we will have a full senior management team in place at a hugely important and transitional time for this club.

“We know there is a rebuilding job required here, and with Lee, Ruban Ghandinesen (Finance Director) and Les Ferdinand (Director of Football) working closely with myself and the shareholders, I believe we’ve got a structure in place to achieve our objectives of getting the club back on a level footing and re-establishing the traditions of QPR.”

Hoos has vast experience in football, having worked for Southampton, Leicester City and Fulham prior to his appointment at Turf Moor, and he is relishing the challenge of his new role at Loftus Road.

“I'm excited about working for QPR and the challenges that come with the role of being a CEO,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.

“I'm fully aware of the transitional phase this club is going through following its relegation to the Championship, but I am encouraged about the vision of the owners, and Les and Ruban, who I am looking forward to working alongside.

“I join with high hopes about the shared vision of everybody at the club. In my opinion, everybody has a part to play – from the owners, to the staff, to the fans.

“I’d like to think I’ve proved myself over the years I've been in the game. I’ve worked at four clubs now and gained lots of experience.

“This is a challenge, but one I'm going to relish.”
