Journalist David Ornstein said: “Mr. Vinai Venkatesham will leave his role as CEO of Arsenal in the summer of 2024. Venkatesham joined the club in 2010, becoming CEO in 2020.
Highly regarded in the soccer world, Mr. Venkatesham chose to look for a new challenge. The current period gives Arsenal time to plan for finding a successor.”
Arsenal homepage information: “Vinai Venkatesham will leave next summer, after 14 years with the club.”
This person personally confirmed: “This was a difficult decision but it was time to pursue another challenge. I remained focused until my last day and provided support for a smooth transition.”
Venkatesham joined Arsenal in 2010 as head of global partnerships and rose through the ranks, before being appointed to one of Arsenal’s most important roles three years ago .
In addition to the CEO position at Arsenal, Mr. Venkatesham also holds seats in the British Olympic Association, the UEFA Committee and the Board of Directors of the European Club Association.
Together with Venkatesham, Mikel Arteta brought Arsenal to second place behind Manchester City in the Premier League last season and ended the 6-year wait to qualify for the Champions League.
Venkatesham’s departure is certainly a big loss for the Gunners.
