Changes in the board room at West Brom see new chief executive named

Martin Goodman is to replace Mark Jenkins as chief executive of West Brom.

Jenkins is stepping down after 14 years at The Hawthorns, the last 10 of which were in his current role.

Goodman, currently chief financial officer at Stoke, will start his new job on January 1, 2017.

Jenkins' decision comes two months after Chinese businessman Guochuan Lai's takeover of the club.

He said on the club's official website: "This came down to feeling like the right time to go. The change of ownership feels like a natural moment for parting.

"Now it is time for fresh ideas and fresh momentum to carry the club forward."

Goodman previously worked with Baggies chairman John Williams at Blackburn and manager Tony Pulis at Stoke.
