The new position is a promotion for Brown, who moves into the top office at Twickenham Stadium from his previous role as RFU’s chief officer, business operations.

He succeeds Ian Ritchie, who announced his retirement earlier this year.

Brown joined the RFU as chief financial officer on June 10, 2011 and served as managing director of England Rugby 2015, responsible for organising the England 2015 Rugby World Cup.

“Over the last six years, Steve has shown us all exactly what he can deliver," said RFU Chairman Andy Cosslett.

"He has undertaken a series of important strategic and operational roles for the RFU and I’m delighted to appoint him as CEO".

Commenting on his new role, Brown said: "This is the job of a lifetime for me.
