"It's a great club and I love the feel of the club.
"I've met quite a few people involved at the club and I've got a good feel for it. Hopefully I can make a difference and I'm sure I will.
"Because of what I've done in the past I've got confidence in my ability. I'm confident I've got the contacts and the know-how to make a difference, that's what I'm aiming to do.
"But don't expect a magic wand."
The Jersey-based businessman revealed to the Telegraph last week that he was reluctant to invest in Scunthorpe, preferring to use his contacts to help boss Brian Laws with player recruitment.
And as yet, he holds no shares in the club – though has not ruled that out in the future.
"That's to be discussed at length yet," said Hobson.
"I'm not saying I wouldn't take any shares. I would hope to get some players in the club and take it from there.
"That's another discussion we've got to have.
"I'm open minded about anything."
