Sam Williams is joining Town as the Club’s Head of Recruitment.
He arrives at Portman Road from Manchester United, where he is currently a first-team recruitment analyst and academy scout.
Prior to joining United, where he has been for almost four and a half years in various roles, he was a scout for Bolton Wanderers, previously spending time in the same role at Sheffield Wednesday.
Sam will officially join the Club on Monday, 11 April.
He will play a leading role in the recruitment and scouting of players at Town.
On his appointment, Sam said: "Mark Ashton really sold the Club and it’s a really exciting time to be joining.
"It’s been a privilege to work for Manchester United and I’ve worked with fantastic people, but this was an opportunity I just couldn’t turn down.
"There’s a lot of work to be done between now and the end of the transfer window. I’m looking forward to the challenge and working together closely with Kieran [McKenna], Martyn [Pert] and Gary [Probert].
"We’re going to implement a very thorough and methodical process which will help provide the best available players to help us achieve our aims and ambitions, which is getting the Club back up the leagues."
