A Launceston Tornadoes end-of-the-year review has caused a shuffle of key board positions at the top that has also led to a new chairman.
Lee Stewart was unanimously elected to take over from Janie Finlay at the club's annual general meeting.
Finlay has stepped down from the Tornadoes leader's role after six years in charge.
She will continue on the board in the newly created role of Tornadoes president.
"Janie has done an amazing job at the helm of the Tornadoes in her time as chair, seeing the club rise to be one of the top clubs in the league - as well as fostering our incredible local following," Stewart said in a statement.
"Janie has also dedicated an incredible amount of time and energy into the Tornadoes and through her tireless efforts, we now have one of the best basketball brands going in Australia."

The board have been analysing the club operations and also conducting a strategic review of its performance.
Launceston bottomed out to 17th - second last - just 12 months after finishing the SEABL runners-up.
Stewart felt the Tornadoes have greater clarity towards a new three-year plan.
"Throughout this process, they have strengthened their internal governance practices and reaffirmed the focus on developing local female basketball talent," he said.
"In addition to this, the Tornadoes have strengthened the relationships with Basketball Tasmania and the NBL1 franchise to provide a strong degree of stability for the club and sponsors."
