Peterborough United CEO Announces Retirement

Bob Symns has announced his retirement as CEO of Peterborough United after 17 years at the club.



Symns has been a steward of the club through three ownership groups, five promotions, two relegations, and a myriad of staff who have been fortunate to have him as their leader.


“The club would like to thank Bob for everything he has given to Peterborough United,” said Darragh MacAnthony, co-owner of Peterborough United.


“Bob has been here with Barry and I since we began this journey in 2006, and the club has grown as a commercial operation significantly under his leadership.


“The new CEO will have massive expectations to live up to.”


The search for the new CEO will begin immediately, and an interim CEO will be announced shortly. Mr Symns will remain with the club as a non-executive Director on the Board as well as serve as a resource to the new CEO and the co-owners on the Embankment Stadium project.


Speaking of his decision, Symns said: “It will initially be difficult not to be involved every day at the club.


“It’s what I’ve given my heart and soul to for twenty years as I fell in love with our football club. But as we emerge from the Covid crisis and I begin to think about the club’s future, my health, and critically my family; I know this is the right time for both myself and the club.”


The club are inviting applications for the role, for more information email: stewart@theposh.com
