BCCI is facing troubles for the past few weeks, as there is a vacuum in the position of CEO. However, a few arrangements are being made for the time being.
BCCI places interim CEO in position
Days after relieving Rahul Johri from his services as CEO, the Indian cricket board appointed its IPL chief operating officer Hemang Amin as the interim CEO. The BCCI is expected to get a new CEO in the next two months. Amin, who used to report to Johri, has been handling operations division of IPL since 2017.
Sources in the Indian board told this newspaper that the new CEO won’t be remunerated as highly as Johri was. In 2016, the board had hired a well known consulting agency, Korn Ferry, to help appoint its first-ever CEO. However, it is understood that this time the board might not hire any agency. They will lookout for a suitable candidate on their own.
Apex Council will be detailing out the criteria for its new CEO in their meeting to be held on July 17 at a video conference. In the agenda for the meeting, circulated to all the Apex Council members, it’s been written that a ‘discussion on the appointment of new employees at the BCCI’ will be held.
“Until a new CEO takes over, the board has asked Amin to handle the CEO’s role for an interim period. The board will discuss the appointment of the new CEO, the advertisement will be given and applications will be invited for the post in the coming days. A new CEO will only take charge after two months” BCCI states.
