Huddersfield Town have confirmed the news that Chief Executive Julian Winter is set to vacate his role early next year after three and a half years at the club.
Winter was appointed to the role back in April 2016, with the former Huddersfield player arriving at the John Smith’s Stadium after previously holding similar positions at Sheffield United and Watford.
The club achieved some success during Winter’s time at the helm by achieving promotion to the Premier League in 2017, but they suffered relegation last term and have struggled to re-adapt to life in the Championship so far.
The Terriers are currently sitting rock-bottom of the second tier after failing to win a game all season, with this run of form seeing them replace former boss Jan Siewert with Danny Cowley earlier this month.
Huddersfield shared news of Winter’s departure via their Twitter account on Wednesday morning:
🤝 #htafc can today confirm that Chief Executive Julian Winter is set to depart his role at the Club.

About time, Big Phil finally sorting out the mess. First bringing Cowley’s in, now this and hopefully in January we’ll see some of the other professional losers depart.

I'll never forget seeing him at the bottom of this pic. Completely emotionless after one of the biggest goals in our recent history. Glad he's gone. pic.twitter.com/jU522yYmwM
