Athletics South Africa (ASA) chairman James Evans has been elected as the federations' new president.
He was voted into the position at the ASA's special general meeting in Kempton Park on Saturday.
The positions of president and vice-president were left vacant after SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) found Leonard Chuene and his vice-president Kakata Maponyane guilty of financial impropriety.
Chuene who was implicated in the Caster Semenya gender debacle in 2009 was banned from getting involved in sport for seven years.
Evans said he has his work cut out.
"Well there couple of things we need to get going ... is that we need to get proper stability in our sport, there has been too much uncertainty and unhappiness … financial side of sport … a bit strong again," he said.
