CHAMPION midfielder Chris Judd has taken the football and list management portfolio on Carlton's board after his appointment was made official.

Judd has replaced outgoing director Adrian Gleeson on the Carlton board having been nominated and accepted to fill the casual vacancy earlier this year.  

Gleeson served as a board member for 11 years and played 176 games for the Blues between 1986 and 1996, including the 1987 premiership.  

Judd, a former Blues captain, was nominated as his replacement by an independent nominations committee.  

The 34-year-old will bring his extensive football knowledge to the club, having played 134 games for West Coast, captaining the 2006 premiership, and 145 games for the Blues.

The champion midfielder won two Brownlow Medals (2004 and 2010), the 2005 Norm Smith Medal, was an All Australian six times, and won five club champion awards.

Since stepping away from football, Judd has been involved in various business ventures.

President Mark LoGiudice, vice president Jeanne Pratt, and directors Luke Sayers, Kate Jenkins, Zac Fried, Marcus Clarke and Craig Mathieson make up the full board.
