St.Mirren have announced that chief executive Brian Caldwell is to leave the Paisley side to take up a position ‘elsewhere’ after the new year.
It is reported by at least one Scottish tabloid, that he will move down to England and leave Scottish football entirely.
A statement via the official club website, read: “During the past eight and a half years he [Caldwell] has worked tirelessly for the benefit of the Club in all areas to ensure the Club has been well run off the park, overseeing many projects including the move and renaming of Paisley 2021 Stadium, formation of the Club’s training ground and airdome, St Mirren TV, etc.
“The Board of Directors are obviously disappointed to lose Brian, but understand that having served the Club for over 8 years and with the option to progress his own career elsewhere there was always a possibility that an offer would come his way due to the excellent job he has done at St Mirren FC.
“The Board wish to thank Brian for his hard work and wish him every success in the future when he moves to his new position after the New Year.”
Caldwell started with the Paisley side in July 2007 as General Manager having worked with Ayr United previous to that for a decade. He became the club’s chief executive in 2012.
