Norwich chairman Ed Balls has revealed the Canaries board are using a head-hunting firm to find a new chief executive.
Former CEO David McNally resigned from the role earlier this month after the Canaries were relegated back to the Championship, and the hunt is now on for his successor.
Time is of the essence as Norwich begin preparations for life outside of the Premier League and a new CEO would give the whole club a lift as they look to win promotion.
Balls says Norwich are not waiting for the right candidate to come to them, and have enlisted some help to ensure they get the right man for the job.
“We decided to get the best to help us, and that means we don’t just have to wait to see who comes to us,” Balls added.
“But also we will go out and look right across the whole football world and potentially more widely – although I think we’re looking for deep football experience – to make sure we get the best.”
