During the latest board meeting, Thomas Di Benedetto was relieved of all his operating duties. He will, however, continue to act as President of Roma. Mark Pannes, the newest member of the Roma board of directors, will be given some of the duties taken from Di Benedetto. His role will be similar to that of Claudio Fenucci, however in the marketing sector (thus making him chief marketing officer). Additional responsibilities will also be given to another new member of the board, Brian Klein.

As for the club's Finance sector, Pallotta will be heavily contributing to the club's funding increase. 50 million euros are expected to be invested into the squad by the month of March 2012, with 22% of it being reserved for the transfer market.

The changes in the board of directors were brought about by the exits of Richard D'Amore and Michael Ruane. Mark Pannes is the co-managing director of Raptor Accelerator, while Brian Klein is a former executive director of Goldman Sachs and a member of the US Soccer Foundation. In addition, Klein is also a former president of a 4th tier American soccer club, the Crossfire Premier Soccer Club, and was part of another youth academy, the Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association. Klein obtained a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at "Southern Methodist University". Along with Pallotta, he owns shares of James River Coal Company, Charter Communications Inc., ABH Abitibibowater Inc. and Level 3 Communications Inc. Both Pannes and Klein were brought in by James Pallotta, who is becoming an important figure in Roma's management.

Roberto Cappelli also confirmed that the plans for the new stadium is in its initial stages.

Here's some short biographies of Mark Pannes and Brian Klein:

The club's official site has released the following:

DECISIONS TAKEN BY A.S. ROMA S.P.A. BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The A.S. Roma S.p.A. Board of Directors met today at club headquarters to approve the A.S.
Roma Group’s final consolidated report relative to the 2011/12 season, as well as the value of
production vs. financial debts parameter as of June 30 2012, in accordance with the provisions of
article 85 of the FIGC’s internal operating regulations. The board was also informed about recent
transfer dealings completed during the summer transfer window. Furthermore, having obtained a
favorable opinion from the Internal Control Committee, the Board decided to renew the General
Management contract with Raptor Accelerator LLC.

During today’s board meeting, Thomas R. DiBenedetto announced his intention to stand down
from his position as president of A.S. Roma, stating that he believes he has fulfilled his task of
steering the club through this initial phase of U.S. ownership. Mr DiBenedetto also resigned from
his position on the Executive Committee, while remaining a member of the Board of Directors.
After thanking the retiring president for his work, the Board reached the unanimous decision to
appoint James Joseph Pallotta as the new president of the Board of Directors. The Board also
appointed Mark S. Pannes as a member of the Executive Committee to replace Mr DiBenedetto.

“It is a tremendous honor to assume the role of Presidente for AS Roma. There is no more
special club in the world, and I accept the responsibility of caretaker to lead it with a great sense
of humility and determination to build it into a championship caliber organization in every
respect.”


- A.S.Roma’s new president James Pallotta.

“We’d like to thank Tom DB for his work over the past year in stewarding the new ownership
group through the purchase of the club. The building blocks are in place for the club to take
major strides forward this season and beyond.”


- A.S. Roma CEO Mark Pannes.

“I would like to share my heartfelt thanks to all AS Roma fans. With the purchase of the club
complete and a new management team in place, it is time for fresh leadership to take the club to
the next level. I look forward to continuing to be part of the Roma family in the years ahead.”

- Retiring A.S. Roma president Thomas DiBenedetto.

------------------------

Huge thanks to Mr. Di Benedetto for bringing this club into good standing again. Grande il Presidente! cheers

Thank you Di Benedetto, 11 months as president of our club. Glad to see Pallotta named president, the most obvious choice, I like the guy. Saw him give Bojan an early birthday gift (Kevin Garnett's shoes which fit him perfectly).
