Ex-Man United financial chief Hemen Tseayo ‘joins Tottenham as their strategic development director’ – six months after ending his decade-long stay at Old Trafford
- Tseayo was a highly influential figure behind the scenes in his time with United
- But he left the club in May 2022 amid a desire for more executive responsibilities
- The Nigeria-born ex-banker has since joined Tottenham, according to reports
Former Manchester United official Hemen Tseayo has joined Tottenham as the club’s new strategic development director, according to reports.
Tseayo parted company with United last summer after more than a decade at Old Trafford, where he worked as their director of corporate development and head of corporate finance before his final role as chief strategy officer.
He proved a highly influential figure behind the scenes, playing a key role in their listing on the New York Stock Exchange shortly after arriving in 2012 and executing several refinancing transactions.
Tseayo was also one of the driving forces behind the club launching its women’s team in 2018.
However, as part of a reshuffle at board level the Nigeria-born ex-banker left United in May 2022, following the departures of chief executive Ed Woodward and director of football negotiations Matt Judge.

According to The Athletic, Tseayo has taken on a position at Tottenham since waving goodbye to the Red Devils, joining the north London outfit as their strategic development director back in mid-November.
His role with Spurs is understood to be wide-ranging, although he is not directly involved in their football operations.
Instead, his job is to take the club forward in terms of domestic and international growth, which includes overseeing their data analyst team and helping them improve their use of data.
Tseayo was said to be keen on find a role with greater executive responsibilities after leaving United, who are yet to appoint a replacement.
Earlier this month Tottenham announced a stunning new 15-year strategic partnership with Formula One that will bring a karting experience to their 60,000 stadium.
The deal will see them hold the world’s first in-stadium electric karting facility below the club’s iconic South Stand, which will make it London’s longest indoor track.
