Parma celebrated their 100-year anniversary in October 2013

Italian side Parma have named 29-year-old Ermir Kodra as their new president, chief executive and general manager.

Albanian Kodra becomes the youngest president in Italy's Serie A.

Parma were recently sold to a Cypriot-Russian group, and Pietro Leondardi moves from his role as sporting director to become director general.

The club finished sixth in Serie A last season but Roberto Donadoni's side have struggled this term and are bottom with nine points from 19 games.

Kodra has worked at the BKT Bank of Tirana and was director of marketing at the ARMO, the largest oil refinery in Albania.
