Former Leicester City chief appoint new CEO at King's Lynn Town
King's Lynn Town have appointed former Leicester City stalwart Barrie Pierpoint as their new chief executive.
Pierpoint starts his new role with immediate effect as the Linnets look to bounce back from their National League relegation at the first attempt.
Lynn's new CEO was responsible for taking the Foxes from the brink of financial collapse to the Premier League back in the 1990s with two League Cup wins for good measure.
Speaking on the club's new appointment, Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve said: "Barrie Pierpoint is a major signing for the club.
"I am looking forward to working closely with him in order to take King's Lynn Town Football Club to the next level."
In a statement released by the Linnets, Pierpoint said his priority at Lynn is to start hold group meetings with staff and lay out his vision and expectations for the future of the club.
He also wants to develop better relations with supporters at The Walks and is planning to release dates for open forum discussions with fans to grow the Linnets' community.
Pierpoint was also acting chief executive at Boston United where he created a five-year strategy
plan for business growth and has also held CEO roles at Bradford and Portsmouth FC.
