Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Glick to the new post of Chief Commercial and Operating Officer.
Tom, currently the Chief Executive Officer of Derby County, is a highly respected professional with 23 years sports management experience both in the UK and overseas. He will take up his position in August.
The post has been created to empower the football club to rapidly realise its ever-increasing commercial opportunities and simultaneously optimally evolve its operations. All members of the commercial and operational teams will report to the new position.
Speaking of the appointment, Interim Chief Executive Officer John Macbeath said,
“Since September 2008 Manchester City has been a club in constant development and evolution. With many milestones achieved in terms of on and off field developments, it is important that we recognise that we must now further evolve in order that we can continue to create and capture potential opportunities for the Club. To do that we need the very best people and the Board believes that Tom is the ideal person for this role. We very much look forward to the contribution that he will make.”
Speaking of his decision Tom Glick said,
“I am very pleased to have been offered this opportunity at Manchester City Football Club. This is an exciting time for all connected with City, and I am looking forward to joining and helping to drive the Club's off-field development on its future journey. I have been impressed by the ambitions and plans set out by the Chairman and Board. I shall use my experiences here in England and in North America to help City build on its recent successes and achieve new milestones in Manchester and around the globe.'
Tom will remain in his post at Derby County over the summer and will continue to work closely with the Board in delivering existing key commercial plans.
