The Indian Premier League Chief Operations Officer Hemang Amit has been given the additional charge as the interim Chief Executive Officer of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
The CEO’s post has been lying vacant since incumbent Rahul Johri was given marching orders last week.
The BCCI is expect to find Johri’s replacement in the next couple of months. The process has reportedly been initiated and finalised by the Apex Council of the Board.
The BCCI office-bearers had reportedly decided on Monday to appoint Amin as interim CEO. The decision was communicated internally by Jay Shah.
The BCCI has in the meantime started deliberating on the appointment of the next CEO. Unlike in the past when Johri was picked by an agency – Korn Ferry – search for his successor will he handled by the board directly.
The BCCI in the next few days is expected to publish an advertisement for the vacant post.
The new CEO, according to national daily Indian Express, would not be remunerated as highly as Johri was. The BCCI Apex Council will detail out the criteria for its new CEO at the July 17 video conference. Discussion on the appointment of new employees at the BCCI is among the items on the agenda.
