LEEDS UNITED have announced major boardroom changes, with vice-chairman Salah Nooruddin to take over as chairman, David Haigh to become managing director and Shaun Harvey to step down from his role as CEO.
The club confirmed that Harvey will remain at the club as a director, but Haigh - formerly a director - will now be responsible for the day-to-day running of the club.
Nooruddin, confirmed as new chairman following the end of Ken Bates’ chairmanship on Sunday, said: “We are pleased to welcome David Haigh to his new role. He and I will continue to work with the rest of the board, the management tram, Brian McDermott and his team to build the foundations on and off the pitch for a successful future for Leeds United.
“At the same time, we extend our thanks to Shaun for his services to the club over the past nine years. Shaun will remain as a director of the club to offer us his considerable footballing experience.”
