Chris Turner, who has latterly been operating as Chesterfield's director of football, has left the club today after five years.
Turner was previously the club’s chief executive before taking on a new role in January.
Director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: “As part of necessary cost-cutting measures, I have carried out a full internal audit and it is with regret that the position of director of football is redundant. Chris has vacated his post with immediate effect.
"On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Chris for his hard work and dedication, which has resulted in a number of six-figure sums being secured via player sales. I would like to wish Chris and his family well in the future.”
Turner, who joined Chesterfield in December 2011, said: “I am very disappointed to be leaving Chesterfield, but I can understand the situation and I leave on good terms.
“I have enjoyed some great times during my time at the club, including two Wembley final appearances and a League Two championship-winning campaign. I would like to thank Dave Allen for giving me the opportunity to be involved with Chesterfield and I sincerely wish everyone involved with the club all the very best."
