Reds looking for new chief executive

iverpool owners New England Sports Ventures have appointed headhunters Spencer Stuart to begin a search for the club's new chief executive. Previous incumbent Christian Purslow stepped down last month, having played a key role in the sale of the club to the Americans, although he was retained by NESV in an advisory capacity. The global executive search firm, who were responsible for recruiting Richard Scudamore as chief executive to the Premier League and Ivan Gazidis to a similar role at Arsenal, will begin their task immediately. Their brief is to find "business leaders with an interest in, and experience of, football" according to a statement from NESV. Principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner will be responsible for appointing Liverpool's new CEO, which they hope will be early in the new year.
