St George Illawarra official, David Perry, has been appointed as NRL club Manly's chief operating officer.

Perry next month will replace Graham Lowe, who's stepping down due to ill health.

The 41-year-old father of two has been the Dragons' executive manager - partnerships and was a former junior coach of Kieran Foran.

"David will bring a wealth of experience in sales and marketing to the club," Sea Eagles chairman Scott Penn said in a club statement.

"He has achieved excellent results in his three years at St George Illawarra as team leader of the club's successful commercial sales team.

"His commercial ability, on top of a lifelong involvement as a player, coach and, more recently, as a senior executive in rugby league, gives him the ideal background for a vital management role at the Sea Eagles."

Perry added: "I have played league in the Manly A-grade competition and know what the Sea Eagles mean to the people of the peninsula.

"It is an iconic brand in the game and I'm excited to be joining the club at a period where the future looks very bright.

"The club has been a permanent fixture in finals football under coach Des Hasler and I look forward to that continuing."
