Hibs are set to land a new chief executive, with Ben Kensell arriving to take up the role, following time at Norwich City (DR).

Kensell left Norwich City last month after seven years with the recently-promoted English Premier League side. Hibs have been on the lookout for a new chief executive since Leeann Dempster departed Easter Road.

It is now believed that Kensell’s next challenge after Norwich City will be Hibs. Jack Ross’ side finished third in the cinch Premiership last season, reaching the Scottish Cup final. They are currently competing in the UEFA Europa Conference League and lead Andorran side FC Santa Coloma 3-0 in the second qualifying round.

During his seven-year stay at Norwich City, Kensell worked his way up from the commercial team to the chief operating officer. He also had spells with Arsenal and Charlton prior to arriving at Carrow Road and was highly-thought of at the Premier League club.

 

Norwich City joint-majority shareholder Delia Smith said of Kensell upon his exit: “We are very sad that Ben has decided to move on. He has made an outstanding contribution to restructuring the club. We and the board owe him our heartfelt gratitude and wish him every success in his next venture.”
