City announce Soriano as new CEO

Per mcfc.co.uk:

Manchester City Football Clubis please to announce that Ferran Soriano, former Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Futbol Club Barcelona, has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective from September 1st 2012.

Soriano had long been touted as the man City wanted to be the long term replacement for Garry Cook, but reports had suggested that they were prepared to look elsewhere after the collapse of airline Spanair which was headed up by Soriano, who was widely credited with laying the foundations for much of the Catalans current success.

However, City have stated that Soriano wished to honour existing commitments prior to taking up his post at City and upon his appointment Soriano said:

"I am delighted to take up the position of Chief Executive Officer of Manchester City Football Club. The vision of the owner together with his commitment, and that of the Chairman and Board, make this opportunity absolutely compelling.

The Club has incredible potential to be fulfilled both on and off the field. I very much look forward to playing my part to ensure that happens."

Soriano will work alongside Tom Glick, who shortly takes up his position as Chief Commercial and Operating Officer and succeeds John MacBeath who had been performing the role on an interim basis.
