QPR owners give Hoos wider role

QPR chief executive Lee Hoos has been given overall responsibility for the entire running of the club.

West London Sport report that Hoos, who was appointed in May 2015, has been asked to take on an expanded role by the club’s owners.

Hoos will now be responsible for all aspects of the club, including the football side.

Director of football Les Ferdinand’s position appears to be unaffected, with Hoos responsible for ensuring QPR stay within their budget while the CEO keeps the owners informed.

It is thought that Hoos being placed in day-to-day charge will improve the running of the club.

Co-chairmen Ruben Gnanalingam and Tony Fernandes are mainly based in Malaysia, hence the decision to give Hoos a greater role.

Hoos has significant experience in the game, having previously worked at Burnley, Fulham and Leicester City.

He was brought to Loftus Road as a replacement for Phillip Beard, who was brought in as chief executive by Fernandes after the takeover of 2011.

QPR have endured a troubled season and were 21st in the Championship table, having lost six matches in a row, before recent wins against Wolves and Ipswich.

The back-to-back victories have lifted Ian Holloway’s side up to 19th.
