New board member for City

London - English Premier League champions Manchester City appointed American Tom Glick as the club's new chief commercial and operating officer on Tuesday.

City have been looking for a new senior boardroom figure since chief executive Garry Cook was forced to resign in September last year after sending insensitive e-mails regarding the condition of the mother of defender Nedum Onuoha.

Onuoha's mother was battling cancer at the same time as acting as the agent of her son, who was then at City and has since joined Sunderland.

After an exhaustive search, City eventually settled on Glick, who had been working as the chief executive of English Championship club Derby and is due to take up his new role in August.

Glick also worked in minor league baseball and the NBA in his homeland before joining Derby in 2008 and will be charged with building City's global brand to rival the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona.

"This is an exciting time for all connected with City, and I am looking forward to joining and helping to drive the club's off-field development on its future journey," he said.

"I have been impressed by the ambitions and plans set out by the chairman and board.

"I shall use my experiences here in England and in North America to help City build on its recent successes and achieve new milestones in Manchester and around the globe."
