The Board of Control for Cricket in India will soon initiate the process to recruit a full time Chief Executive Officer. The post has been lying vacant ever since Rahul Johri made a pre-mature exit last year.
BCCI interim CEO and the Indian Premier League Chief Operations Officer Hemang Amin can also apply for the post.
The BCCI’s five elite office bearers – president Sourav Ganguly, secretary Jay Shah, vice president Rajiv Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and joint secretary Jayesh George – had ment in Mumbai on Saturday to discuss a host of issues, including the appointment of the full time CEO.
The Indian cricket board will have a new CEO in the coming months.
Presently, the IPC COO Heman Amin is holding the additional charge as the BCCi interim CEO.
“We will have a new CEO soon and currently we are discussing about the process of appointment. During Rahul’s time, we had a head hunting agency. Whether we will do the same thing or directly seek applications is yet to be decided,” PTI has quoted an anonymous BCCI source as saying.
The eligibility criteria for the post of BCCI CEO is more than 10 years of experience of working in top management position in a company which has ₹ 100 crore annual turnover.
Can Hemang Amin apply if he wishes to? “Yes, Hemang will also have to apply for the position if he is interested. His application to the best of my knowledge wont be accepted automatically.”
