Former Arsenal chief executive was named the new chief executive of AC Milan after a club board meeting Wednesday. Gazidis was given a contract that runs through June 30, 2020.
“It’s a great honour to have been chosen to lead AC Milan into a new era as its chief executive,” Gazidis said.
The 54-year old Gazidis spent ten years at Arsenal after serving seven years as deputy commissioner of MLS. Gazidis, who left Arsenal in September, oversaw the growth of Arsenal’s international branding and the transition from Arsene Wenger to Unai Emery as Manager.
