David Gill, Manchester United executive, to step down
Question of the Day
LONDON — Manchester United chief executive David Gill said Wednesday he will step down in June after a decade running one of the world’s most valuable teams.
Ferguson has been manager since 1986 and his tenure has delivered unprecedented success for the club, which currently leads the English Premier League by 12 points. He hasn’t said when he intends to retire.
“I am looking forward to continuing my involvement on the club board,” Gill said. “And I hope to be able to make a contribution to the game on a wider national and European level.”
Following six years as finance director, Gill became chief executive in 2003.
The buyout by the Glazers angered some fan groups because of the debt that was incurred by the club. But those liabilities have been cut in half in the past three years to 366.6 million pounds ($567 million), partly from the proceeds of last August’s initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange.
Forbes last month said United’s enterprise value, which subtracts debt from equity value, has risen to $3.3 billion, the highest for any sports team in the world.
Last week, United forecast revenue of 350-360 million pounds ($535-550 million) for 2012-13.
