Leeds United confirmed this week that Chief Executive Ben Mansford will leave the club at the end of this month.
Mansford joined the Championship side from Barnsley in June 2016, playing a pivotal role in what has been a mixed year for the club.
He played a key role by assisting in the process to bring investment to Elland Road in the form of Andrea Radrizzani.
"We would like to thank Ben for his hard work and dedication during his time at the club," said co-owner Radrizzani.
“Ben has been a major factor in the club’s resurgence in the past 12 months commercially and in the community, he has been a great support to Garry Monk and played an important role in my investment process.
Fellow co-owner Massimo Cellino added: “Working with Ben has been a positive and enjoyable experience and I would like to personally wish him all the best going forwards.
“I have no doubts he will succeed in his next venture.”
An announcement on Mansford’s replacement will be made in the coming days.
