In a recent announcement, Chelsea’s Management revealed Chris Jurasek now has an executive role and appointment. He has been appointed as their new chief executive. However, this news comes with the departure of Tom Glick, who served as the club’s president of business for less than a year.
In a bid to revive their fortunes after a disappointing 12th-place finish in the Premier League last season, Chelsea Football Club has announced the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager. The move comes as the London-based club seeks to recapture the glory days of their past successes in both English and European competitions, which were achieved during Roman Abramovich’s tenure as the club owner before the leadership change.
In a recent development, American co-owner Todd Boehly’s Clearlake Group has appointed Jurasek as the executive to supervise all business areas at the club administration (Chelsea) after the departure of Glicks. Jurasek will report to the board and co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley.
In a statement, Jurasek expressed his delight in joining Chelsea, a club that has garnered immense love and following across the globe. The individual expressed immense pride in leading the organization toward the next phase of its illustrious history.
According to the spokesperson’s statement, the team has a lot of room for growth, both on and off the field. The aim is to involve their exceptional fan base in the club’s structure, football operation, and how the team management is run, not only in London but also worldwide.
Co-controlling board directors Behdad Eghbali and Jose E. Feliciano have announced that Chris’ skill and expertise, coupled with his strategic leadership, will be instrumental in driving the club forward, success planning in all areas, and particularly in supporting their long-term plans for Chelsea in the sports industry.
In a surprising turn, former Manchester City executive Glick is set to depart from his position despite having been appointed just last July.
According to a report earlier this month, Chelsea has enlisted a law firm’s services to investigate Neil Glick’s conduct. The investigation aims to determine whether Glick’s response to a female agent’s complaints about a club executive’s behavior was appropriate. Glick allegedly dismissed the agent’s concerns, stating they were irrelevant to his job and did not interest him.
