Paul Aldridge is to leave Wednesday at the end of next season.
Mr Aldridge, who joined the club as Vice Chairman and CEO in January 2011 under Milan Mandaric, told the club website today: “I have had a tremendous time at the club and look forward to playing my part next season in what I hope will be a very successful campaign.
“Mr Chansiri and I discussed the best long-term future for the club and we have decided that now is right time to make and announce this decision. I am sure by giving the chairman sufficient time to consider who is the right person to lead the club into its 150th anniversary, he will appoint the most suitable successor.”
Chairman, Delphon Chansiri, said: “I am grateful for all the help Paul gave to me prior to and during the takeover process and, of course, he has a very important role to play. This decision will allow me the time to begin the process of identifying his successor.”
Mr Aldridge’s announcement comes less than 24 hours after the news tnat Adam Pearson and Glenn Roeder have joined the club as part of a three-man sporting director committee, alongside head coach Stuart Gray.
