Mr Rendell was nominated by members of the Alliance group and all supporter groups who were all in agreement he should take the role.
Rich, who is a lifelong Yeovil fan, will take up the position with immediate effect.
“I’m delighted to take up the role of Supporters Alliance Group chairman,” he told YTFC.net.
“I’m happy to deal with any queries from the supporters.”
The Supporters Alliance was formed at the end of 2016 and is made up of five supporter groups – G&A (Green and White Supporters Club), DSA (Disabled Supporters Association), Junior Glovers, Bridport Glovers and Cary Glovers.
The group, which will be known as the ‘Achieve by Unity Supporters Consortium’, is a working party to improve the growth of the relationship between Yeovil Town Football Club and its supporters.
They will look to bring together official Yeovil Town supporter groups to provide a unified voice, improve relationships and unity between the club and its fans, and give all member groups a formal approach to the YTFC board.
This season has been used to discuss the makeup of the Alliance and how the group work with the club, and the second meeting was to show and gain further feedback from the supporters survey.
The aim is to build on this initial relationship in the close season and move forward.
The supporters groups have nominated and appointed Rich as Chairman of the Alliance Group whose main role will be to link the groups, the club and the Board of Directors, and in the future working on appointing a Supporter Director/SLO.
This will ensure there is dedicated time for supporters and a line of communication between the club and the groups.
Supporters can still come directly to the club if they are not part of these groups as we value all opinions and ideas.
More action and involvement is required and will start in the close season talking about fixtures, matchday staffing and asking these groups for their ideas, support and help.
Everyone at Yeovil Town would like to wish Rich all the best in his new role.
