Norwich City have confirmed the appointment of Jez Moxey as the club's new Chief Executive.
Moxey has held a similar role at fellow Championship side Wolves for the last 16 years but will now move to Carrow Road following the Midlands club's recent takeover.
The 53-year-old will stay at Wolves for the time being to help oversee their change of leadership.
Wolves were promoted to the Premier League twice with Moxey at the helm and their Molineux stadium was also expanded to its current 31,700 capacity.
Norwich have been looking for a new Chief Executive after David McNally resigned back in May.
Director of Finance Steve Stone has been in Interim charge ever since and will continue in the role until Moxey arrives.
We're absolutely delighted to be welcoming Jez on board to lead this great football club into the next chapter of its 114-year history.
We've conducted the very best and most thorough search for the right person to help us take the Club forward and Jez, with his wealth of football experience and business acumen, was the stand-out candidate from an extremely strong shortlist.
He is a very astute and highly-regarded operator within the game and has all the attributes and skills needed to embrace the immediate challenge of helping us to get back to the Premier League as a successful and vibrant club, on and off the pitch.
Meanwhile, until Jez formally takes up his duties with us, Steve Stone will continue as Interim Chief Executive. The Board would like to place on record our sincere gratitude for the excellent job Steve has done leading the club through this period of transition.
– ED BALLS, NORWICH CITY CHAIRMAN
