Blackburn Rovers FC have announced the appointment of their PR chief Paul Agnew as the club's new general manager.
The 54-year-old, who has been a key member of the Rovers management team for the past 16 years, will take up his new role, which includes a seat on the board of directors, next month.
Agnew, who has previously served as chief executive at Preston and is also a former journalist, has been appointed following discussions with owners Venky's.
He will hope to arrest the decline of the club following relegation from the Barclays Premier League.
Agnew said: "It is a great honour to be handed this opportunity and I will do all I can to help the club to grow and prosper.
"Suffering relegation last season obviously hurt everyone involved, but we must not get bogged down with what has been and gone.
"This is a time to regroup, look forward and concentrate our efforts only on aspects that we can affect and control."
