"So, it gives me great pleasure to announce three new additions to the board in Huw Evans, Andy Hunt and Huw Morgan, all of whom will bring considerable experience and expertise to the business.
"Huw Evans is a well-respected and highly experienced businessman, with a considerable knowledge and passion for rugby; with great connections across the game established over decades from his involvement as the chairman of the Scarlets and as the founder of Regional Rugby Wales.
"Huw Morgan has occupied senior roles at Harlequins and, most recently, as commercial director at the IRB.
"Meanwhile, Andy is well known for his role as chef de mission for Team GB for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
"It's the start of an exciting new chapter in the history of Gloucester Rugby, one that will see Kingsholm host matches in Rugby World Cup 2015."
