Chelsea today appointed former Manchester City chief executive and Carolina Panthers president Tom Glick to take over day-to-day running of business affairs at the club.

Glick has been named president of business and will assume many of the responsibilities previously held by former chief executive Guy Laurence.

His appointment continues the overhaul behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge following the takeover in May by a consortium led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital.

Glick, who has also previously worked at New York City Football Club, was president of NFL franchise Carolina Panthers until February.

His duties at Chelsea will include “managing global commercial strategy, driving revenue growth and enhancing fan engagement”.

New Chelsea co-owner Boehly said: “Tom’s successful track record as a leader and innovator at several respected and winning sport organisations made him the obvious choice for this 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.”

Glick said: “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.

“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.”
