Harlequins have announced that David Morgan will replace Malcolm Wall as chairman.
The club also confirmed that David Ellis will assume the role of Harlequins chief executive, replacing the outgoing Mark Evans.
Harlequins enjoyed a successful 2010-11 season, taking the Amlin Challenge Cup in dramatic fashion against French side Stade Francais.
Morgan has been a non-executive board member of Harlequins since 2010 and took on the title of acting chief executive over the past couple of months.
"It is a tremendous honour for me to become chairman of Harlequins, a club with which I have had an involvement for over 35 years," Morgan said.
"Malcolm Wall leaves Harlequins with the club in an upbeat mood, confident and optimistic about our future. I am looking forward very much to playing my part in the next chapter of our great club.
"On behalf of all at Harlequins, I would like to thank Malcolm for his outstanding contribution as chairman during the past two years, and to wish him well in his new role."
