Martin Perry has stepped down as chief executive of Brighton and Hove Albion football club after 15 years at the helm; ten of which were spent fighting tooth and nail for the construction of the American Express Community Stadium.
Martin Perry will stay on the board of directors and continue to be the chief executive of The Community Stadium Limited which is leading on the construction of a new training ground and academy in Adur. Fellow director Derek Chapman will be temporary chief executive until a replacement is recruited.
The club issued a statement saying, “Martin Perry has given the board early notice that he wishes to retire in July 2014 following completion of the expansion of the Amex and the construction of our new training ground and academy.
“Martin’s personal contribution to the club has been enormous over the last 15 years and we would not be where we are without his efforts.”
