Arsenal’s Chief Executive Officer Vinai Venkatesham has announced his resignation after 14 years of service to the club.
Venkatesham joined the club in 2010 as head of global partnerships and moved up the ladder as the CEO over the past three years.
Speaking during the announcement, Venkateshman couldn’t hide his emotional side.
“This was a tough decision, but it is time to pursue another challenge,” he told the Arsenal club website. “Now is not the time for goodbyes as I remain focused until my last day and supporting a seamless transition.”
Reacting to the bombshell Arsenal co-chair Josh Kroenke, he added: “The board fully supports Vinai’s desire to pursue his next challenge.
“Whilst it is business as usual with everyone focused on the season ahead, we’d like to take this moment to thank him for his contribution and long service.
