Manchester United have appointed Cliff Baty as their chief financial officer.
The 45-year-old joins the Premier League giants from Sportech plc, a pool betting operator and technology supplier, where he has served as chief financial officer since 2013.
Prior to Sportech, Baty worked for several years at Ladbrokes plc in a number of senior finance roles, and as group financial controller at Hilton Group plc.
“We are very pleased to welcome Cliff to the club,” said United’s executive vice chairman Ed Woodward.
“He is a proven finance executive who brings a wealth of international business experience, and will be an excellent addition to our senior management team.”
