Edinburgh's managing director Jonny Petrie has been appointed as Ulster CEO.

Ulster had been seeking a new chief executive since Shane Logan's announcement in June that he would be stepping down from the role.

The Irish province confirmed that Petrie will be in position "by the beginning of 2019".

Petrie was appointed as a commercial operations manager by Scottish Rugby in June 2014 before taking up the Edinburgh role 13 months later.

Before joining Scottish Rugby he was head of sponsorship at the energy company SSE for five years, working across sport and entertainment on such projects as the SSE Hydro and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

"I am enormously privileged to have been offered this role with Ulster Rugby and am looking forward to joining the club at such an interesting and exciting time for rugby at all levels across the Province," he said.
