Peter Moore will start work in June as Liverpool’s new chief executive.

The 62-year-old Liverpool-born businessman will leave his role as chief competition officer for gaming giant Electronic Arts in the States after accepting an offer from Reds owners Fenway Sports Group to be Ian Ayre’s successor.

What’s his background?

It’s fair to say that Moore will bring with him a wealth of business experience.

He studied at Keele University before doing a masters degree at California State University. After spells working for sportswear companies Patrick USA and Reebok in marketing, he moved into the gaming industry after taking on a role with Sega.

Moore, who was key to the initial success of the Dreamcast game console, rose up the ranks to become president and chief operations company of Sega of America.

“I had to fire a lot of people. It was not a pleasant day,” he said.
