BCCI appoints Hemang Amin as interim CEO
After Rahul Johri's decision to step down as the BCCI CEO, the Indian cricket board has decided to appoint Hemang Amin as the interim CEO of the board. The board employees were informed about the arrangement on Monday.
A functionary said that it was an apt move at this point in time as Amin has been one of the hardest workers in the BCCI in the last couple of years.
"The right man for this charge. To be very honest his contribution to the BCCI has been miles ahead of Johri and he did the real work for most of the commercial deals of the BCCI," the functionary said.
A former office bearer who worked with Amin said that the latter has been a sincere worker and someone who has the interest of the BCCI at heart.
"Sincere, competent, he has the best interests of BCCI at heart and also writes his own emails," he said.
Johri's resignation was accepted on Thursday and a board official had said that the leak of confidential financial information over a sponsorship deal was the final nail in the coffin as the current dispensation believes in utmost transparency.
Amin is the IPL COO and had played a major role in scraping the opening ceremony last year.
