Wrexham appoint new CEO

Wrexham AFC has announced the immediate appointment of Michael Williamson as Chief Executive Officer.

The news follows the announcement earlier this month that Fleur Robinson was to leave her job as the CEO at Wrexham at the end of the season. Fleur joined the club three years ago and oversaw their successful double promotion from the National League to EFL League One.

Wrexham AFC Co-Chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds welcomed Williamson to the club sharing, “As the fortunes and dreams of Wrexham AFC have grown, so must our club operations. The Board is pleased to welcome Michael Williamson as new CEO of Wrexham. Michael comes to us with deep global football experience with D.C. United, Inter Milan and most recently Miami FC. Over his many years at Serie A’s Inter Milan, he served various roles including Chief Financial Officer, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-CEO of San Siro Stadium. He has worn many hats and will continue to wear many more now that his hat will say Wrexham AFC. Also, Michael. We’re out of hats. Could you get on that? Love, Rob and Ryan.”

"I am delighted to join Wrexham AFC after their impressive back-to-back promotions to League One,” said Michael Williamson. “I look forward to working with the dedicated management, staff, and players who have excelled since Rob and Ryan’s arrival in 2020. As we plan for further growth and success on and off the pitch, we will prioritize maintaining our strong ties to the Wrexham community and our loyal fan base while enhancing our international appeal.”
