The leadership structure at Arsenal has undergone a significant change with the appointment of Stan Kroenke and Josh Kroenke as Co-Chairs and Tim Lewis as Executive Vice-Chair.
This move is part of the club’s ongoing transformation since Kroenke Sports & Entertainment acquired full ownership in 2018. Josh Kroenke has been a non-executive director at Arsenal since 2013, while Tim Lewis previously worked at Clifford Chance law firm before focusing on his role at the club.
Arsenal implement major changes in their management
Club’s statement reads: “The appointments are a recognition of how our leadership structure has evolved over the past several seasons since Kroenke Sports & Entertainment assumed 100 per cent ownership of Arsenal Football Club in 2018.
“Stan, Josh and Tim have worked together to drive our club forward and their appointments bring clarity to our structure that reflect their roles and responsibilities and will ensure we continue in our pursuit of progress and success.”
Lewis played a key role in advising Stan Kroenke during the period between 2007-2018, when KSE progressively invested more money into Arsenal before ultimately purchasing the club.
The statement intends to support Arsenal‘s ongoing achievements and advancements both on and off the field. It also seeks to provide transparency regarding the roles and responsibilities of each member within the club’s structure.
Lewis, who is a devoted Arsenal supporter, has been working closely with the team for a significant period and has played a crucial role in shaping the current executive framework.
