Thomas Di Benedetto has officially been named as Roma's new President after being voted in by the club's board.
The American bought a controlling 67 per cent share in the club this summer and has since invested heavily, bringing in a number of players to support new Coach Luis Enrique.
The 62-year-old was confirmed in his position as President at a board meeting on Tuesday, after a vote held by the other 10 directors approved his admission to the board.
In a brief statement spoken in English, the club's 22nd President reflected on what it meant to him, and what he intends to do for the club.
"It is a real honour for me to be formally named the President of Roma, a club and a team with a long and glorious history. We will continue to work hard to make Roma a team that its passionate fans can be proud of."
He takes over from Roberto Cappelli, who had taken the role in an interim period from July 4 after Rosella Sensi departed.
