A chief executive officer not allowed to make the biggest decisions at the football club? What are we praising her for then? Well done Denise for signing of on Usmanov and Moshiri’s crazy football manager play decisions?

Call it what it is then. Moshiri is effectively executive chairman, and DBB is chief operating officer.

Can people not see the logical fallibility of excusing DBB for all decisions at Everton because they belong to other people, whilst simultaneously praising her as a wonderful chief executive?!

At the end of the day, when it comes to the crunch the major decisions will be made by the person who has pumped in a few hundred million pounds and not by the person he has employed to do the day to day running.

So she does day to day running then. That’s not a CEO is it, the E part of the acronym is missing.

Be logical, is it her putting millions into the club?

When it comes to major decisions it will be made by Moshiri and he will have the deciding vote in the boardroom.

Im agreeing with you. She doesn’t make the decisions, therefore she’s not the chief executive officer at the club. Moshiri is.

So why are we praising her for being a wonderful CEO? Sounds like she’s an excellent Chief operating officer.

He actually has no votes in the boardroom as he’s not on the board.

He’s the overwhelming majority shareholder and as such can do just about anything he likes by virtue of his investment.

Doesn’t mean he spends money wisely or make overwhelmingly sensible decisions.

The CEO however has a role to perform in keeping things on as even a keel as possible, and in that she’s found wanting. She talks about our commercial side being better but, that’s almost entirely down to USM not anything her or the alleged commercial staff have succeeded in bringing in.

Didn't know where to post and might have been brought up before, popped up on the radar reg. discussion of the La Liga salary cap application in the Prem.

The wage ladder doesn't look so good for Moshiri. But you folks probably know better where (numerous?) problems lie

Of course Moshiri wields the influence. He has the final say but it shouldn't be the only say.

If he had confidence in the CEO and board, there would be individuals there whose opinions would carry weight with him, and would not be backwards in expressing those opinions.

This is conjecture of course. But realistically, I don't expect a person of Denise's business background to be considered as a figure of real influence in the eyes of Moshiri and Usmanov. Or the other directors. No genuinely external appointments amongst any of them, which suggests only a certain narrow way of thinking is accepted. That inevitably leads to problems.

Moshiri could have appointed a "Hollywood" CEO and paid them accordingly, in the same vein as he targeted some managers. It seems he chose not to and perhaps intentionally chose as such. An industry leader with significant commercial experience is what we needed for CEO.

That's desperately frustrating. Some of the biting constraints were are now experiencing due to mismangement and insufficient oversight may have been avoided or at least mitigated if we had a CEO/Directors/Senior Management team able to speak up and express concerns and insist that the business and financial management team be held accountable for performance, individually and collectively.
