His professional experience proved to be instrumental in arranging various finance and commercial initiatives for the Club, while his work on the new stadium has created a good base for us to move forward with as we embark on this exciting project.
"We all wish him every success as he moves on to his next project.”
On departing from his post, Sasha said: “It has been a great honour and privilege to serve on the Board of this special Club and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board and Mr Moshiri for their unwavering support. I feel proud of what we have been able to achieve on the various projects and wish Everton the success the Club truly deserves in the future.”
