Bank of SA managing director Rob Chapman has been appointed chairman of AFL club Adelaide by its newly-formed board.

Chapman, who replaces Bill Sanders, has been a member of the board for the last 12 months as deputy chairman.

Dual premiership player Nigel Smart, who amassed 278 games for the Crows, was elected deputy chairman.

Smart is a former vice-captain of the club and has been on the board since 2005.

"I consider it to be a great privilege to be appointed chairman of the Adelaide Football Club," Chapman said.

"The next 12 months, we all know, will be an interesting mix of challenge and excitement.

"We have a youthful list and a team that is rightly being talked about as capable of setting us up for years to come, and like all other clubs we have some major off-field challenges in this currently tough economic climate."

The SANFL announced the appointment of Andrew McEvoy as a director of the board on Thursday.

The 2009 board is: Rob Chapman (chairman), Nigel Smart (Deputy Chairman), Alan Sheppard, Andrew Payze, Peter Hurley, John Sutton, Andrew McEvoy and Steven Trigg (CEO).
