RICHARD ARNOLD is the current CEO of English giants Manchester United – but that could change.
SunSport exclusively revealed that Sir Jim Ratcliffe is the preferred bidder in the Red Devils’ eventful takeover saga.
And a decision in favor of Britain’s richest man would mean an imminent exodus of the rest of Old Trafford’s senior management, including CEO Richard Arnold.
But what else do we know about Arnold and what is his net worth?
Who is Richard Arnold, Man Utd CEO?
Richard Arnold was born on April 26, 1971 and was educated at King’s School, Chester before attending the University of Bristol.
Arnold joined PricewaterhouseCoopers in 1993 for a telecommunications and media leadership position before joining Global Crossing Europe six years later.
But his big break came in 2007 when the wealthy Briton joined United as the group’s commercial director.
Richard worked his way up the corporate ladder, taking control of the club’s operations, until he got a seat on the board where Arnold would oversee sponsorship deals like United’s $1.3 billion deal with Addias.
And all of the British businessman’s hard work paid off when Arnold succeeded college friend Ed Woodward as CEO at Old Trafford on February 1, 2022.
What is Richard Arnold’s net worth?
Richard Arnold’s has an estimated net worth of over £740,000.
However, TSB News reported that Ed Woodward was paid over £3million in the 2019-20 season, making him the highest-paid Premier League director that year.
Therefore, it is expected that Arnold would receive the same or even a higher payout than during a campaign affected by Covid-19.
