New Zealand Football has appointed former London Irish rugby boss Andy Martin as its new chief executive.

NZF said it had undertaken an extensive worldwide search involving more than 179 candidates.

Martin recently oversaw a two-year project that led to the successful buy out of London Irish by a consortium of Irish businessmen.

"I am excited by the many opportunities and challenges facing New Zealand Football at the moment," Martin said.

"We are at a potentially transformational point in its history."

Martin's CV also includes being on the board of Barclay's Bank, and working as managing director for its corporate bank.

H has an MBA from Henley Business School in England.

Martin will start work in February and replaces Mark Aspden, who has held the job on an interim basis following Grant McKavanagh's sudden resignation in July.
