Liverpool have confirmed chief executive officer Peter Moore is to leave his role after three years. Moore has been responsible for Liverpool’s off-field operations during their rise to success on a domestic, European and world stage.

Moore will leave at the end of his contract with current managing director Billy Hogan to take over the role from September 1st.

Peter Moore to Leave Liverpool CEO Role After Three Years

Billy Hogan Will Replace Moore From September

Liverpool announced via their website Moore would be leaving the club. Moore has been in his role for three years but will leave once his contract expires. Current managing director and chief commercial officer Billy Hogan will take over the role in September.

Moore is a vastly experienced figure Liverpool will be sad to lose. Following a successful career in the United States, Moore returned to the UK in 2017.  He has overseen major improvements in commercial, community and civic operations and will be sorely missed.

Moore Hails Incredible Journey During Time at Liverpool

Speaking about his time at the club, Moore said: “I’ve loved every minute of the job here in Liverpool. I feel privileged to have moved the club forward on its civic, commercial and community operations during the last three years.

“It’s been an incredible journey and I’d like to pay tribute to John, Tom and Mike for giving me the opportunity to lead the business operations at Liverpool.

“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with an exceptionally talented senior leadership team; a group of committed colleagues who work tirelessly for the club; former players; business, community and civic partners and sponsors; incredible supporters around the world and so many other people I’ve met through my role as CEO. I’m indebted to so many people I’ve met on this fantastic journey at Liverpool.

“To think we have won the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and now the Premier League title during my time here is way beyond my dreams. It’s been a phenomenal achievement by the manager, players and staff. The team fully deserves the plaudits and recognition – and the memories I will cherish forever.”

Billy Hogan Honoured to Take Over the Role

Liverpool’s new chief executive officer Billy Hogan said: “On behalf of all our staff, partners and other stakeholders, I’d like to place on record our thanks to Peter for his leadership during the past three seasons and wish him well on his return to the US with his wife Debbie.”

“Having been privileged to work at this club for over eight years, it is truly an honour to take up the role of chief executive officer. And continue with the great work that has been done to date across the entire organisation. I thank John, Tom and Mike for this opportunity to lead the business into the next phase of this exciting chapter.”
