Huddersfield Town are about to conduct final interviews for a new chief executive.
They are seeking a successor for Nigel Clibbens, who left the club earlier this month.
Chairman Dean Hoyle said: “We have our shortlist and we hope to appoint shortly.”
Clibbens joined the Town board in December 2008, having assisted Hoyle when he bought into Town, while working for accountants Grant Thornton.
He oversaw the day-to-day running of the club for seven years, during which time promotion to the Championship was achieved in 2012.
Wakefield-born Clibbens spent 10 years at PricewaterhouseCoopers, working in insolvency, before joining Grant Thornton in 1999.
Over the next nine years he specialised in the financial restructuring and reorganisation of businesses, helping to develop and implement strategy and improve their viability.
He has a broad experience working in many industries and sectors of business, including many football clubs.
