“This is a challenge and an opportunity I'll approach with total commitment,” said Lewsey.
“I'm delighted to have been offered this opportunity to play a pivotal role in ensuring the strength and well-being of the national sport of Wales.
“Everyone involved in rugby knows how passionate the whole of Wales is about the sport so I'm fully aware of the huge responsibility I'm accepting.
“A key driver for me is to balance the focus between the elite and community games in a way that establishes a long-term sustainable platform for rugby in Wales.”
