Manchester City have appointed Tom Glick, the Derby County chief executive, to the newly created role of chief commercial and operating officer.
Glick will leave Derby in August to begin the job. John McBeath, City's acting chief executive, said: "Since September 2008 [and Sheikh Mansour's purchase] Manchester City has been a club in constant development and evolution. It is important we recognise that we must now further evolve in order that we can continue to create and capture potential opportunities. To do that we need the very best people and the board believes that Tom is the ideal person for this role."
