Liverpool CEO Peter Moore’s exit announced as club confirms his replacement
Peter Moore will step down after three years as Liverpool chief executive officer this August, the club have confirmed.
Moore, who joined Liverpool in 2017, will be replaced by Billy Hogan, who is the current managing director and chief commercial officer at Anfield.
Moore has been an influential figure behind the scenes at Liverpool, who have enjoyed much success both domestically and in Europe under his stewardship.
The CEO's job required Moore to oversee the club's commercial ventures.
Liverpool saw record profits with Moore at the helm, which has enabled Jurgen Klopp to bolster his side with big-money signings over the past three years.
Moore's replacement Hogan has been promoted from within.
Hogan has worked for Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group since 2004, and first moved to Liverpool from Boston in 2012.
He has been responsible for driving the club's commercial stratgery.
Hogan also helped negotiate Liverpool's new lucrative kit deal with sportswear giants Nike, which official gets underway on August 1.
Fenway Sports Group, principal owner John W. Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Mike Gordon released a collective statement.
It read: "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.
"We wish him, his wife Debbie and their families every success for the future as they return to the US and hope they will come back to visit us to take in a few games at Anfield."
