Katrien Meire has been appointed Sheffield Wednesday chief executive – just days after the announcement she was stepping down from the same role at Charlton Athletic.
Meire told the Sheffield Wednesday website: “I am so pleased to take up the position of CEO at Sheffield Wednesday.
“This is a massive challenge at a massive club and I am looking forward to beginning this journey.
“The chairman has very exciting plans for the club in the short and long term, and I bought into his vision immediately.
“The size of the club and fan base at Hillsborough is renowned in the football world, which were key factors in my decision to join.”
Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri added: “I would officially like to welcome Katrien to Sheffield Wednesday.
“Katrien’s appointment is a key development for our club and one which I am delighted to make.
“I have said for some time that I would only appoint a CEO should the right person fit my specification to lead the structure of Sheffield Wednesday on a day to day basis.
“I am 100% convinced I have found that person in Katrien and I am delighted to confirm her appointment.”
