The West Indies Cricket Board has announced the appointment of a new chief executive officer.
Jamaican management consultant Michael Muirhead would succeed Dr Ernest Hilaire, whose tenure ends on September 30.
Muirhead, who holds an MBA in finance from Georgia State University in the United States and a degree in management studies from the University of the West Indies Mona Campus, has been appointed on a three-year contract.
The 55-year-old Muirhead had served as executive director of the Tourism Product Development Company in Jamaica from 2004 to 2006 and he has been engaged as a management consultant involved with several high level projects in his native country.
“I am delighted at the confidence that the board has placed in me and stand committed to advancing the implementation of the strategic plan and the policies of the board,” Muirhead said.
“West Indies cricket has been enjoying some recent successes and is now positioned to be a competitive force once again among the cricketing nations of the world. I will do my utmost to maintain and improve on what has already been put in place thus ensuring that we as West Indians can once again proudly hold our heads high.” (HG/PR)
