Mark Devlin appointed Interim Huddersfield Town CEO

Huddersfield Town have appointed former Queens Park Rangers, Swindon Town and Brentford chief executive Mark Devlin as their interim chief executive.

Devlin was most recently chief exec at Irish side Dundalk FC after seven-and-a-half years in the same role at Brentford.

Huddersfield Town chairman Phil Hodgkinson said: “We’re very happy that we can welcome Mark to Huddersfield Town on Monday.

“Mark’s track record in football speaks for itself. He’s an experienced leader who has excelled wherever he has worked, but his time at Brentford really stands out.

“He’ll add a real know-how to our leadership group, and I believe he will be an asset to the club. I'm looking forward to working closely with him.”

Devlin said: "I am delighted to be joining Huddersfield Town at a such an exciting time in their history. The chance to work at a club of this size and potential is a great opportunity.

“I look forward to working with the chairman, leadership group and all of the staff as we look to drive the club forward."

Town had previously announced Burnley In The Community's Neil Hart to the chief executive role, only for him to do a U-turn a few days later to take the same job at Burnley FC.
