Liverpool's managing director Christian Purslow is to step down from the post following the £300m sale of the club to New England Sports Ventures (NESV).
But Purslow will remain at Anfield as a non-executive director and will act as a special adviser to the new owners.
"I came to lead the club through a sale process to get the best deal including, vitally, removing the debt," he said.
"I am immensely proud of what we've achieved and look forward to assisting the owners in any way I can."
The long drawn-out sale of the club, previously co-owned by Americans George Gillett and Tom Hicks, combined with the club's disastrous form, has made for a painful season so far for the Reds faithful.
