Sheffield Wednesday appeared to be a club back on the rise under Steve Bruce.
The Owls have managed to turn things around on the pitch following the new manager’s arrival, however, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.
The club have confirmed on their official website that Katrien Meire has left her position as Chief Executive Officer.
The former Charlton Athletic CEO joined Sheffield Wednesday just over a year ago and appeared to play a rather large, but quiet, role behind the scenes.
Meire did not reveal the answers about how she came to make her decision, but wished the club the best and believed their journey to the Premier League has not looked any better than now.
“Since joining Sheffield Wednesday in January 2018, I felt a warm welcome from everyone at the club and the fans at games and around the city,” she said.
“I would like to wish the chairman, the staff and players at the club all the very best. With new manager Steve Bruce in charge and the fantastic support of our amazing fans, the club’s journey to the Premier League has never looked any better.”
Meire’s departure will certainly come as a shock to those at Sheffield Wednesday.
Despite their well-documented problems with Financial Fair Play regulations, something many had believed Meire would be the person for the job to sort out, things had started to look promising on the pitch.
Those at Hillsborough will now want to see the team continue picking up results under Bruce and will be hopeful Meire’s departure does not have a negative effect.
