The Swans have wasted no time in announcing their appointment for the departed Trevor Birch with the news that Julian Winter has been appointed as the new CEO of the club and will take up his position later on in the month.
After months of large silence, the ownership group spokesman was busy today as he/she made their second statement of the day stating “We are pleased to welcome Julian as the club’s new chief executive.
“As part of the appointment process we received significant positive input from many constituencies within the club and those who have worked with him at his prior clubs.
“His extensive industry experience and collaborative leadership style will be a valued addition as we embark on this next chapter.”
The official site states “Winter built his reputation through a number of key executive roles in recent years and is held in high regard within the footballing industry.”
Winter has been Chief Executive at Huddersfield, Watford, Sheffield United and Notts County.
I’m obviously delighted to have been selected as the new CEO at Swansea City.
I look forward to getting started at the club on a day-to-day basis, meeting the staff across the club and helping lead Swansea City to a successful future on and off the field. – new Swans CEO Julian Winter
