Male, who played professionally for Torquay United, is also chief executive of the Bromsgrove-based GMS security company.
Harriers owner Richard Lane, who appointed the 42-year-old, said: “We are pleased to welcome Neil Male to Kidderminster Harriers. With his proven business and leadership skills, enthusiasm for football and also being a well-rounded leader, he will add real energy and support.”
Male said: “The role of Chief Executive at Kidderminster Harriers is an exciting opportunity, and I am looking forward to meeting the challenges ahead. I feel extremely privileged to have been given the opportunity to support Richard leading such a fantastic football club with a great history.”
He has been unofficially supporting Richard and the CEO function since October when Lane led a consortium which completed a takeover of the club.
He took over from former owner Colin Gordon who had been in charge at Aggborough for four years.
Gordon was acting as a consultant to the owners following the takeover.
