Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron has stepped down after six years in charge at the Caledonian Stadium.
Cameron's decision comes only a couple of days after Caley were relegated from the Scottish Premiership on the final day of the season.
He was at the helm when the club won the Scottish Cup for the first time at the end of the 2014-15 season, a victory that saw Caley reach the Europa League for the first time.
Director Willie Finlayson, who has been a board member since 2010, takes over from Cameron.
"It is time for me to step down and leave others to take the club forward," Cameron said in a statement on the club's official website.
"When my appointment as chairman was announced in September 2011, it was described as 'a short term arrangement'.
"This 'short term' arrangement has lasted almost six years and due to financial restrictions, I also found myself taking on the role of chief executive, as the funds were not available to fill the post.
"It has been my privilege to support the club in a variety of roles as we continued our eventful journey. We have experienced periods of exceptional success over the years and for a club, still in its infancy, to achieve what we have on limited resources makes that success all the more remarkable.
"I extend my grateful thanks to my fellow directors past and present, staff, shareholders, sponsors, volunteers and supporters who have generously contributed to our club with their unstinting support and dedication over the years.
"I owe a great debt of gratitude, in a list too long to mention, to all the players and management teams who served the club during my tenure. I also thank the many friends I have made in football for their help, good counsel and humour which was always very much appreciated.
"I urge the public of Inverness to strengthen their support for the club. It is never an easy task to remain competitive and successful on limited funding whilst remaining debt free, and it is always a difficult pathway to navigate."
