Liverpool CEO Peter Moore to step down after three years
The CEO of Liverpool FC, Peter Moore, will step down after three years at the club, with Billy Hogan due to take up the role in his place, in August this year.
Moore, a life-long LFC fan, born in Liverpool in 1955 later moved to the US where he became the CEO of leading tech firms SEGA, Microsoft and EA.
He took the role on as LFC CEO in 2017, a role he would describe as a 'dream job' and overseen the club getting back to where it belongs at the top of world football.
A statement released by the club, contained a few paragraphs from Moore himself. He said: "I’ve loved every minute of the job here in Liverpool and feel privileged to have moved the club forward on its civic, commercial and community operations during the last three years. It’s been an incredible journey and I’d like to pay tribute to John, Tom and Mike for giving me the opportunity to lead the business operations at Liverpool.
"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; former players; business, community and civic partners and sponsors; incredible supporters around the world and so many other people I’ve met through my role as CEO. 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."
