Liverpool Football Club has named Peter Moore as its new chief executive officer.
Liverpool-born Moore will take up his new role in June and report directly to the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.
The 61-year-old is currently chief competition officer at Electronic Arts, based in the United States, and will move to Liverpool to join the club in the summer. His nearly 10 years at EA have seen him in a number of leadership positions, including chief operating officer and president of EA SPORTS.
Moore has previously held senior roles with Microsoft, SEGA and Reebok. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Keele University in the UK and a master’s degree from California State University.
The appointment completes a 10-month transition plan by FSG and finalises the senior management structure at the club.
