Robbie Hunter-Paul will take up the position of chief executive at Bradford, following the sale of the club by Omar Khan.
Khan revealed yesterday that he was selling the club to local businessmen Ryan Whitcut and Mark Moore, who will become joint chairmen.
Paul returned to Bradford in July after winning every honour in the game in a decade of success as a player with the club, and was given the title of Deputy Director, but will now become CEO.
He said: “As the pinnacle and face of the club, I think it’s important that the position is a strong one with the responsibilities to go with it.
“I’m excited about it and I don’t need to even mention the passion I have for the Bulls because it’s so well documented.
“I’m trying to bring the club back to where it belongs and it’s exciting.”
In another off-field change, Roy Davison will become Assistant Commercial Director.
Paul also revealed that Whitcut and Moore will seek other investment for the club, but stated that the future does not depend upon this happening.
