Chelsea have appointed Tom Glick as their president of business, the Premier League club said on Monday.

Previously chief commercial officer of the City Football Group, Glick will assume day-to-day operational control of the club, including managing its global commercial strategy, driving revenue growth and enhancing fan engagement, the statement said.

According to Reuters, his appointment follows the departure of several executives and staff members at Stamford Bridge following the takeover led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.

“Chelsea FC is an iconic sports institution, known and admired all over the world. I have been very impressed with the vision and mission of Todd Boehly and Clearlake,” Glick said in a statement.

“They have the Chelsea community at the heart of everything they do. We have a huge opportunity here to enhance performance across the board, on behalf of everyone we serve.”

Glick was president of NFL franchise Carolina Panthers until February. He was previously chief executive of Derby County and has served on the English Football League board.

A group led by Boehly and Clearlake Capital acquired Chelsea in May after Abramovich put the club up for sale following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow calls a “special military operation”.

Boehly said Glick was the “obvious choice” for the position.

“His skills and experience will be vital as we improve Chelsea FC’s key infrastructure, expand the club’s products and reputation, and find exciting new ways for our loyal supporters to engage with their favourite players,” he added.
