Shaun Harvey to Leave EFL at the End of the Season

The EFL have confirmed that current league Chief Executive Shaun Harvey will leave his position at the end of the current campaign.
Harvey became EFL CEO in October 2013 and has worked for twenty-five consecutive years in professional football, twenty-three of which has been in the EFL with either Clubs or the League itself.

Shaun Harvey will leave his position as CEO of the EFL at the end of the season.

There have been any number of significant changes and initiatives introduced during Harvey's time as CEO that will provide a fitting legacy for his contribution to the evolution of the EFL, to the widely respected and admired competition it is today.

In a statement, released via the EFL's official website, Shaun said; "Having joined the EFL as CEO in October 2013, I am proud of what we have achieved since then, in what have not always been easy circumstances.

"Consistently during my time, I have always looked to push boundaries to make the maximum positive impact for Clubs, whether this be from a financial perspective or by generating value in another way. I have always held the view that the strength of the EFL, is its Clubs and no Club, or indeed individual, is bigger or more important than the collective or the EFL itself.

"After discussions with the Board, we decided that the time is right for the EFL to now move in a different direction having concluded a number of commercial contracts that leave the League in a stable position.

"I am happy to remain as CEO until after the Play-Offs, in order to conclude a number of outstanding matters that we are currently dealing with, after which I will move on to pastures new and hopefully make a positive difference elsewhere."

Debbie Jevans, Interim Chair of the EFL, added; "The EFL would like to thank Shaun for all he has delivered since joining as CEO in 2013.  The EFL is in a strong position with a growing fan base throughout the world and Shaun deserves a lot of credit for this.

"Shaun and the Board have agreed that the time is now right for a change of leadership and a new direction.  We are pleased that Shaun has agreed to stay on until the end of the season."
