Andrea Pinchen has been named Leicester Tigers’ new Chief Executive, having previously been its Chief Operating Officer.
Current Chief Executive Simon Cohen will depart with immediate effect.
Peter Tom, Chairman of Leicester Tigers, said: “Simon has served Tigers for 15 years, playing a vital role in the professionalisation of the club’s activities on and off the field.
“After many years of service and in the context of the challenges presented by Covid-19, Simon and the Board agreed now was the right time for him to step down as Chief Executive. We thank him for his contribution and wish him the very best for the future.
“I’m delighted that Andrea has agreed to become the club’s Chief Executive. She brings huge passion, commitment and energy to the club and was the Board’s unanimous choice. We are sure she will be a great success in her new role and we wish her every success.”
