Headhunters appointed to find new CEO


Recommended Posts

From the Daily Telegraph.........


The appointment of a successor to outgoing chief executive Rick Parry, meanwhile, has moved a step closer after co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett appointed headhunters to lead the search.


Simon Cummins, head of the sports practice at London-based recruitment consultants Odgers Berndtson, will be responsible for compiling a long-list of candidates for the job, which falls vacant at the end of the season.


Odgers have worked extensively in sport, recently recruiting Andy Anson to lead England’s 2018 World Cup bid and working with the ECB on the appointment of Andy Flower.


Cummins was selected from a shortlist of UK-based companies after being interviewed by both Hicks and GIllett. The joint role played by the co-owners in recruiting Parry’s successor is an indication that the pair are working more closely than was the case earlier in the season.


They 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.


Parry was left with no option but to leave after he lost the support of both Benitez and Hicks.
