New Chief Executive appointment moves closer

The selection of Rick Parry’s successor as Liverpool FC Chief Executive took a step closer after Tom Hicks and George Gillett appointed recruitment consultants Odgers Berndtson claims The Telegraph. Simon Cummins, head of sports for the recruitment firm will be responsible for compiling the list of suitable candidates for the role. Cummins was interviewed by both Hicks and Gillett indicating the pair are certainly working more closely then in previous months and can only be a positive thing for the club. The article goes on to say that the owners “want a world-class candidate capable of representing the club and helping extend Liverpool’s commercial reach, though their ability to work with Benitez will be as important.” This sounds promising. Let’s hope the club employs someone with world class aspirations and modern business acumen, whilst having a firm gasp of the traditions of the club.
