Hibs head coach Paul Heckingbottom believes there are ‘good times ahead’ for the club following Ron Gordon’s takeover.
The American businessman became the new majority shareholder on Tuesday, ending Sir Tom Farmer’s 28-year stewardship of the Easter Road side.
Rod Petrie has also stepped down following 22 years on the board, the last 15 of which he served as chairman.
And Heckingbottom reckons the club are on the brink of an exciting new era with Gordon as owner.
Heckingbottom tweeted: “It was a pleasure to meet Ron and his family.
“Even this early on he’s been so supportive. With everyone pulling in the one direction there are good times ahead here.”
Former Barnsley and Leeds United boss Heckingbottom also praised outgoing owner Farmer.
He added: “It was a pleasure to spend some time with Sir Tom Farmer yesterday at HTC (Hibs Training Centre).
“You can’t help but be inspired by a man who has done so much for his club and his community over such a long period of time.”
