Liverpool CEO, Ian Ayre To Step Down In May 2017

By Lukmon Oloyede.
Ian Ayre has announced he is to step down as CEO of Liverpool Football Club at the end of May 2017.
Ayre, who joined the club in 2007 as commercial director before becoming chief executive in 2013, will step down when his current contract expires.
Under Ayre’s leadership he has overseen a complete transformation of the club’s financial, commercial and operational structure; played a pivotal role in progressing the redevelopment of Anfield stadium and regeneration of the local area; and restored Liverpool’s reputation as one of the leading clubs in English football.
Commenting on Ian’s decision, principal owner John W. Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Mike Gordon said in a statement released by the club: “Ian advised us of his intention to step down as CEO a few months ago.
“We asked him on several occasions to take some time to reconsider his decision, but have been unable to convince him to remain as CEO beyond
May 2017. We will at some point in the near future begin identifying and recruiting a worthy successor to continue to build on the outstanding foundations which have been laid by Ian.
