Steve Gallen looks on

Charlton Athletic can confirm that men’s first-team Director of Recruiting, Steve Gallen has left his role at the club.

Gallen joined Charlton as Head of Recruitment in 2017 and was appointed to the club’s Board of Directors in September 2019 after playing an important part in the club’s promotion to the Championship.

He was the club’s Director of Football from January 2020 until his appointment as Director of Recruiting in December 2021.

Managing Director, James Rodwell, said: “I worked closely with Steve when I initially came into the building at the end of 2022 and he was a great help in the January 2023 transfer window. Subsequent to the takeover, we’ve mutually agreed that now is good time for all involved for him to move on.

“We’d like to thank Steve for everything he has done during his time at Charlton and wish him the best for the future.”

Gallen said: “I’m incredibly proud to have worn the Charlton badge for more than six years, which have included many ups and downs - the highlight being that incredible promotion against all odds in 2019. The staff, the players and the fans have been outstanding and I’ve made some really good friends during my time here. I want to wish the new ownership, Dean, his team, all the players and the fans the best of luck for the future.”

Everyone at the club would like to thank Steve for his efforts and wish him all the very best for the future.
