The 76-year-old will continue in the role of senior advisor.
Buck said it was the “right time to step down”, and was thanked by Todd Boehly, who completed his takeover of the club last month.
Buck had been chairman since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.
“I am proud to have helped Chelsea realize great success on the pitch and make a positive impact in the community,” said Buck.
“Now is the right time to step down and let new ownership build on the strong foundations we have in place.
“The owners have a compelling vision for Chelsea’s future, and I look forward to helping them achieve it in this new role alongside our incredible staff, players, coaches and supporters.”
Boehly added: “Bruce has led Chelsea to the highest levels of international and domestic football, while also developing one of the most active social responsibility projects in sport.
“We thank Bruce for his service and his commitment to the club.”Bruce Buck to step down as Chelsea chairman - The Athletic View Story
