Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has joined the Scottish FA's main board to represent professional clubs.
He was nominated by the professional game board as its representative.
Lawwell stressed that he would be working towards introducing measures to the "benefit of Scottish football as a whole".
"Whilst there are certain challenges facing the game in Scotland, there is also a great deal to be positive about and look forward to," he said.
"We must build on these positives and, along with other board members, I look forward to playing my part in working to improve and develop various aspects of the game."
Following its 2011 annual meeting, the SFA created two operational boards, one to oversee the professional game and the other for amateur football.
The non-professional game board will make its nomination at its next meeting.
Lawwell effectively replaces Ralph Topping, who was on the board as chairman of the Scottish Premier League, which merged with the Scottish Football League in the summer to form the .
The Celtic chief executive joins SFA chief executive Stewart Regan, president Campbell Ogilvie, vice-president Alan McRae, second vice-president Rod Petrie and independent non-executive director Barrie Jackson on the main board.
Regan, Ogilvie, McRae, Petrie and Lawwell are also on the professional game board along with , Dr Andrew Waddell of the East of Scotland Football League, Sandy Stables of the Highland League, Kilmarnock chairman Michael Johnston, Stenhousemuir chairman Bill Darroch and Aberdeen managing director Duncan Fraser.
"Will Lawwell have time for this, while simulataneously running the World Bank, United Nations and Vatican?"
He can leave the day-to-day running of the Vatican and World Bank to his minions in Opus Dei & the Knights of St Columba.
The SFA must be his first priority - until a single World Government can be set up, under the sway of the Carolingian Kings.
