Gordon Matheson was elected at a meeting of the ruling Labour Group
Labour members of Glasgow City Council have elected a new leader to replace Steven Purcell.
Council treasurer Gordon Matheson was voted in at a meeting of Labour group members. Councillor Archie Graham will be his depute.
Mr Matheson takes over from interim leader Jim Coleman.
Mr Purcell stood down as leader in March. He initially cited "stress and exhaustion", but later admitted having used cocaine.
Mr Matheson, 43, said he was "delighted and humbled" to become council leader.
He said the priorities of the administration would remain education and early years, skills and the economy, and targeted support for the vulnerable.
"This is a challenging and exciting time for Glasgow," he added.
"There are unquestionably difficult economic times ahead but together we will work through this period and come out stronger."
Mr Matheson was first elected to the council in 1999.
He has worked in economic and personnel development and has been a board member of several organisations, including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Strathclyde University Court.
