Jeremy Derek "Jez" Moxey (born 19 April 1963) is the Chief executive officer of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.[1]

Career[edit]

Moxey, a basketball player in his youth, ran a sports marketing business, a basketball franchise, spent five years as general manager of Partick Thistle F.C., and worked with Rangers F.C., before his appointment as Chief Executive of Stoke City F.C. in 1995. He was responsible for the construction of and move to the Britannia Stadium in 1997, and led the negotiations which saw an Icelandic consortium purchase a controlling interest in the club.

Moxey joined Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. as Chief Executive and, by extension, a director of the club in June 2000, roles he has remained in ever since.[1][2] During his time at the club they have been promoted twice to the Premier League but never sustained that position for more than three seasons. From 2010 to 2012 Moxey was a member of the FA Council as one of the division's representatives.[3]
