Brentford chairman Cliff Crown told the club's official website: "Mark has done an exceptional job as Sporting Director since taking that role 30 months ago and we are happy he can step in to this new role seamlessly.

"We believe it will help the players and staff to work with someone they know and respect and we look forward to continuing success for Brentford Football Club."

Brentford are currently fourth in the League One table.
