Motherwell have announced that chief executive Alan Burrows is stepping down from the role.
The Fir Park club revealed the news on Thursday.
Appointed in 2014, Burrows is the longest serving CEO in the Scottish Premiership and he will remain in the role until a suitable replacement has been brought in.
In a statement released on the club’s website and social media pages on Thursday, he said the decision was made “with a very heavy heart”.
Burrows said: “It is with a very heavy heart that I resign from a club that I love dearly,”.
“I have hugely enjoyed working with my fellow directors, the amazing, hardworking staff and the countless players, managers and coaches in that time. I want to thank and pay tribute to each and every one of them; I have so many terrific memories.
“I would also like to thank the supporters who accepted me as one of them, and gave me room and time to get comfortable in my role, particularly at the start.
“I have discussed my future with the chairman for some time and although there isn’t always an ideal time, I felt a new year gives everyone the chance for fresh start. I would like to give someone else the chance to drive our club forward. Someone who can perhaps bring new, exciting ideas and a different approach.
“Although I’ll shortly leave Fir Park for the last time, my heart will always be with this fantastic club. Thanks again for everything.”
Motherwell are currently tenth in the Premiership after a run of seven games without a league win.
