Liverpool have announced that their chief executive officer, Peter Moore, will step down after three years at Anfield, with Billy Hogan taking over the role from 1 September.
Moore took up a three-season post as Liverpool's CEO in 2017, playing an important role in the club's commercial, community and civic responsibilities during a landmark period of success.
“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with an exceptionally talented senior leadership team; a group of committed colleagues who work tirelessly for the club," Moore told the club's official website. "I’m indebted to so many people I’ve met on this fantastic journey at Liverpool.
“To think we have won the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and now the Premier League title during my time here is way beyond my dreams. It’s been a phenomenal achievement by the manager, players and staff. The team fully deserves the plaudits and recognition – and the memories I will cherish forever.”
Moore had previously resided in the United States from 1981 to 2017, enjoying successful spells at Sega, Reebok, Microsoft and EA in that time.
In a statement on behalf of Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool's principal owner John W. Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Mike Gordon said: “We would like to place on record our gratitude to Peter for his contribution and moving the club forward over the past three seasons. He has strengthened the club’s business operations through his leadership and we are grateful to him for his passion, dedication and support.”
Moore's successor Hogan will step up from his current role as managing director and chief commercial officer, after spending more than 16 years in the football and sports industries.
