LUFC | Chief Exec Mansford departs Elland Road
Leeds United Chief Executive Ben Mansford is to leave the Whites at the end of the month.
A statement from the club reads:
Leeds United can confirm that Chief Executive Ben Mansford will leave the club on 31st May2017.
Ben joined the Whites from Barnsley in June 2016, playing a pivotal role in what has been a positive year both on and off the field for the club.
Mansford has been the driving force behind attempts to re-engage with the community as well as leading the football and commercial arms of the business.
He also played a key role by assisting in the process to bring investment to Elland Road in the form of Andrea Radrizzani.
"We would like to thank Ben for his hard work and dedication during his time at the club," said co-owner Radrizzani.
“Ben has been a major factor in the club’s resurgence in the past 12 months commercially and in the community, he has been a great support to Garry Monk and played an important role in my investment process.
"On behalf of all at the club we wish Ben every success in the future."
Fellow co-owner Massimo Cellino added: “Working with Ben has been a positive and enjoyable experience and I would like to personally wish him all the best going forwards.
“I have no doubts he will succeed in his next venture.”
An announcement on Ben Mansford’s replacement will be made in the coming days.
