In addition to Cech, Buck and Granovskaia, CEO Guy Laurence and ex-head of goalkeepers Christophe Lollichon have also departed Chelsea.
Boehly previously stated that he will take on chairman duties as well being Chelsea's interim sporting director.
Glick said: ‘Chelsea FC is an iconic sports institution, known and admired all over the world.
"I have been very impressed with the vision and mission of Todd Boehly and Clearlake.
"They have the Chelsea community at the heart of everything they do.
"We have a huge opportunity here to enhance performance across the board, on behalf of everyone we serve.’
New boss Boehly said: ‘Tom’s successful track record as a leader and innovator at several respected and winning sport organisations made him the obvious choice for this position.
"His skills and experience will be vital as we improve Chelsea FC’s key infrastructure, expand the club’s products and reputation, and find exciting new ways for our loyal supporters to engage with their favourite players."
