Peter Kenyon Leaving CAA By Mutual Agreement Amid Restructuring

CAA Sports has decided to restructure its international operations and as a result, longtime soccer exec Peter Kenyon, who was assisting the agency in growing its international sports business, is leaving the company by mutual agreement, CAA said today. “As a result of a strategic restructuring related to CAA Sports’ international business, Peter Kenyon and CAA Sports have jointly decided to end our employment relationship,” CAA Sports said in a statement. ”We are proud of the work we have accomplished with Peter. Led by a team that includes a number of recently added executives, we have seen consistent success, in the U.S. and around the world, creating meaningful opportunities for the agency and clients in the global sports marketplace.”

Kenyon, who was hired in '09 and formerly held chief executive positions with EPL clubs Chelsea and Manchester United, was based in CAA's London office. Kenyon worked alongside CAA Sports co-Heads Howard Nuchow and Michael Levine. Kenyon's departure is related to a decision to restructure CAA Sports from a geographically-based leadership approach to a practice-based approach, a source said. Attempts to reach Kenyon for comment were unsuccessful. Two international sports execs who Kenyon hired, Philippe Le Floc'h and Peter Draper, are also leaving, a source said. Le Floc'h was based in Dubai and Draper was based in London. Attempts to reach them for comment were also unsuccessful.
