World’s richest sports league appoints woman to universal acclaim
In a significant, perhaps groundbreaking, move for women in football leadership Susanna Dinnage will become the first woman to run the Premier League and any of the major global sports leagues.
Bruce Buck, the chairman of Chelsea FC, who led the selection process, said Dinnage was “the outstanding choice” for the role.
“We are very pleased to appoint such a capable leader to this important role,” said Buck. “We had a very strong field but Susanna was the outstanding choice given her track record in managing complex businesses through transformation and digital disruption.”
