Ferres stepped down on Monday after he could not introduce a number of changes at the club and his role will be temporarily filled by Gill, who is a former assistant coach.
Gill has been head of the club's youth development department since 2008 and is honoured to take on the new job.
"Jack Fulton asked me if I would stand in as CEO for an interim period which could be 2-6 weeks depending on finding the right person," he said.
"I have full support from Ian Millward (head coach), Richard Turner (general manager) and Nick Fozzard (commercial manager). I have also spoken to Steve Ferres and he has offered his support if required. There's a lot to do and I know I will be busy in the weeks to come.
"I've been a Cas fan all of my life from doing the scoreboard and ball boy duties as a youngster to being assistant first team coach to now head of youth.
"Though I have no designs on the CEO role permanently, it is a privilege and I will give it my best shot so that when a new CEO comes in there's not too much of a gap."
Chairman Jack Fulton said: "I would like to thank Steve for stepping forward to the breach at short notice, albeit on a temporary basis.
"His dedication and devotion to the club is without question and I ask that the fans unite behind Steve and the club during this time."
