American Mark Noonan has resigned as the Chief Executive Officier of Hearts of Oak after refusing to return from his native country just one week after the club said he was attending to some pressing family issues.
Noonan left Ghana about a month ago and was expected to return to continue his job as the CEO of the club but has decided to step down.
According to a club’s statement released on Thursday, Noonan exited the club on “personal reasons”, coupled with lack of competitive football in the country, which left him “frustrated”.
The club also revealed that Noonan’s position has been taken over by Fredrick Moore.
“The board also wishes to inform the public especially the club’s followers that it has decided to appoint Fredrick Moore as Mark’s replacement, ” the statement read.
“Frederick Moore joins Hearts from AJS Consulting where he helped set up various business market platforms to support the retail industry and provided business advice to start-ups.”
Details of his contract is not known but Moore’s task begins from where Noonan ended in his one year stay with the Phobians
Noonan officially began his duty in March 2018 with the task of reviving a club’s fortune and image.
On his appointment as the CEO, Noonan facilitated the movement of the team’s training from the Legon Ajax Park to the Pobiman field, which has been earmarked for a sports complex.
He supervised several recruitments at the Club including the appointment of former Ghana international Kim Grant as head coach for the side.
He left the country last month to attend to some family issues, according to club statement earlier.
