BCCI appoint interim CEO after Rahul’s resignation
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have appointed Hemang Amin as the interim CEO of the board. Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary informed the report with an email.
Just a couple of days after Rahul Johri resigned from the position of CEO, BCCI have appointed Hemang as the interim CEO. Jay Shah wrote in an email regarding the appointment of Hemang.
“As you might be aware, Mr. Rahul Johri who was the CEO, has resigned and is now no longer with BCCI. We have appointed Mr. Hemang Amin, COO, IPL as the interim CEO of the BCCI. I request you to extend all possible co-operation to Mr. Amin in his new role,” he said.
Apart from the CEO position, several other key posts in the board left vacant or supposed to be left vacant. So it is needless to say that Hemang is coming to join the board during a difficult phase. The office bearers, meanwhile, will be looking for a full time-replacement, the process for which is likely to be decided in the upcoming Apex Council meeting, on July 17.
They will be looking to pick a candidate of their own rather than hiring a consulting agency, which proved to be not an ideal decision last time.
It has also been reported that the interim CEO played a major role in sacrificing the IPL ceremony last year and donating the money to Pulwama martyrs’ families.
