Dean Hoyle: High-quality candidates already for Huddersfield Town chief executive job

Interviewing to start soon for successor to Nigel Clibbens

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle says they’ve already had some “high quality” candidates apply for the vacant post of chief executive.

The club owner is running day-to-day business himself at the moment since Nigel Clibbens left the club, but he says interviewing will soon begin.

“Football is an ever-changing business and we will now have a different direction going forward,” explained Hoyle.

“Nigel did a great job here and brought in some good processes, but it’s now time to move on and have a fresh pair of eyes looking inwards to help us move forward under David Wagner.

“Hopefully, we will be interviewing for the post soon.

“Lots of good candidates have put their names forward, but I have nobody in mind at this stage.

“Nigel leaving wasn’t pre-planned. In the short term I will take the reins but, obviously, we need somebody through the door with different skill sets to complement what Nigel brought to the club. I’m confident we can do that.”
