Manchester City have appointed Derby's Tom Glick as their new chief commercial and operating officer.
Garry Cook resigned as chief executive in September over claims he emailed Nedum Onuoha's cancer-suffering mother mocking her illness.
American Glick will leave Pride Park to take up the role with the Premier League champions in August.
City hope Glick will help the club "rapidly realise its ever-increasing commercial opportunities".
Glick worked in minor league baseball and the NBA in his homeland before joining the Rams in 2008.
He said: "This is an exciting time for all connected with City, and I am looking forward to joining and helping to drive the club's off-field development on its future journey."
