EFL appoint leader while CEO sought

9 June 2019

The EFL Board has appointed Debbie Jevans CBE to the role of Executive Chair of the English Football League. Having joined the EFL as an Independent Non-Executive Director in 2014, Ms Jevans, who was on the panel at a special ‘Women in Football’ event held by Brentford FC in March, has been operating as Interim Chair of the League since September 2018 and has now taken on responsibility for leading the organisation until a new CEO is appointed.

This recruitment process for the new EFL CEO is underway and the EFL has stated there has been strong interest received in the position from both inside and outside football, with the timeline currently on track to have the successful candidate in post early in season 2019/20. In addition at the 2019 AGM, held this week, clubs ratified the appointment of Brentford fan Simon Bazalgette to the position of Independent Non-Executive Director.
