Liverpool begin search for new Chief Executive
Fri 12th Nov 2010 | Football Club Management
Liverpool Football Club’s new owners New England Sports Ventures have appointed global headhunters Spencer Stuart to begin a worldwide search for the club's new chief executive.
Previous incumbent Christian Purslow stepped down last month, having played a key role in the sale of the club to the Americans, although he was retained by NESV in an advisory capacity.
The global executive search firm, who were responsible for recruiting Richard Scudamore as chief executive to the Premier League and Ivan Gazidis to a similar role at Arsenal, will begin their task immediately.
Their brief is to find 'business leaders with an interest in, and experience of, football' according to a statement from NESV.
Former chief executive of the Football Association and lifelong Liverpool supporter Brian Barwick has been linked with the vacancy.
