Norwich City chairman Ed Balls says the club's new Chief Executive had to beat off competition from people working in the Premier League and The Championship to land the job.
Wolves CEO Jez Moxey was appointed yesterday as the man to replace David McNally who resigned back in May.
Moxey will start his new role at Carrow Road once he has overseen Wolves' change of ownership.
Balls says the Canaries received several applications from Chief Executives working at both Premier League and Championship clubs but Moxey was the unanimous choice with the board.
"We set out with a clear specification. We wanted someone that had deep, long-standing football experience and was a current serving CEO of a prominent club," Balls told the club's official website.
"We wanted somebody who's highly respected in football, who will respect our fans, our staff and our traditions, and who is ambitious for us in the future.
"This is a job that a lot of people wanted to come and do. We wanted someone who was as ambitious as us with the experience to match. That's what we've got in Jez Moxey."
