The corporate & management hierarchy thread

 

Imagine a club with competent people at key positions at the club’s corporate hierarchy. Imagine a management team with no Steves.

 



CURRENT SETUP:

 

Ownership

🇸🇦 Public Investment Fund (80%)

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 PCP Capital Partners (10%)

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 RB Sports & Media (10%)

 

Corporate hierarchy

🇸🇦 Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Non-Executive Chairman

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Amanda Staveley, Director

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Mehrdad Ghodoussi, Director

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Jamie Reuben, Director


Management hierarchy

Good thread idea, really. It's going to need to be laid out who's who, as it'll get quickly complicated. Ooh, that smell of professionalism :lol: 

 

Maybe SweMag is up for updating the OP with the hierarchy positions, as they are confirmed.

Just a quick google paste if anyone is like me and always forget what the corporate jargon actually means.

 

The nonexecutive chair is responsible for chairing the board meetings as well as the executive sessions of independent directors. The nonexecutive chair's role is to improve and maximize the governance process, not to manage the company.

 

An executive chairman has many of the same responsibilities as a non-executive chairman, except he's a company's paid employee. An executive chairman takes a more active role in supporting the CEO, ensuring the CEO grows into the role. He can help the CEO make the right decisions and avoid wrong ones.

 

A chief executive officer (CEO) is the highest-ranking executive in a company, whose primary responsibilities include making major corporate decisions, managing the overall operations and resources of a company, acting as the main point of communication between the board of directors (the board) and corporate operations and being the public face of the company. A CEO is elected by the board and its shareholders.

More or less a Director of Football. But I think in this case he’d be fully in charge of the heavy lifting for the entire direction of the club’s football side - training facilities, science, direction of youth, etc

Reading a bit about Rangnick, he'd be perfect https://breakingthelines.com/historical/ralf-rangnick-the-hoffenheim-diaries/ - maybe the right approach is to as someone said look for the talent of tomorrow not yesterday, while investing in the infrastructure to make it pay off

 

Former Stuttgart manager Horst Heldt claimed at the time of their promotion that Hoffenheim were the only club in Germany who could rival Bayern Munich to the signing of €30 million Franck Ribéry that summer, but Rangnick was adamant that his team’s strategy was different:

 

“Did we get Ribéry? Never! For us, it is ideal that we don’t sign players who are already playing at a higher level than us, but rather want to go there [the higher level] with us. I want players for whom a move to us is not a step backwards. We are convinced that all the guys we brought in last year – Vorsah, Eduardo, Gustavo, Ba, Obasi, Nilsson – were not only good for promotion, but also for the first division.”
