Coventry City have appointed Chris Badlan as the club’s new Head of Recruitment.
Chris joins the Sky Blues from Norwich City, where he had been Head of European scouting.
Badlan joined the Canaries in May 2017, prior to which he had been Head of Emerging Talent at Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he had also previously been Technical Recruitment Officer.
Dave Boddy, Chief Executive at Coventry City, said: “We are delighted to bring Chris to the club as Head of Recruitment, leading our Recruitment Department.
“Chris has experience with top clubs in England and starts with us immediately. He is very enthusiastic about the role and will be a real asset for Coventry City, with a strong network of contacts both in this country and abroad.
“Unlike previous changes in recruitment staff, thanks to the work to create a Recruitment Department the transition will be seamless. We are pleased that Stuart Bentham, the club’s recruitment analyst, continues in his role and the club’s recruitment database remains, so the club and Chris are in a strong position to hit the ground running going into the summer.”
Chris Badlan said: “I’m very pleased to have been appointed Head of Recruitment at Coventry City.
“It is a fantastic club, and I am looking forward to starting in the role. Obviously we are approaching a key time of year, and I will be working closely with Mark Robins and the club in this busy period.”
