TNM Super League defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets have disclosed plans to hire a chief executive officer (CEO) on a full time basis.
The new CEO will replace Escort Chinula who is currently working in acting capacity.
Bullets vice president Fleetwood Haiya said this is in line with their plans of running the club as a commercial entity.
Haiya said after completing the hiring process the club will issue a statement through its website before the unveiling ceremony.
“We are hiring a full time CEO as one way of meeting our targets of turning Bullets into a real commercial entity. The current CEO is working in an acting capacity and we saw it necessary to have someone working on a full time basis,” he said.
Haiya revealed that the incoming CEO will come from outside the country.
“We want someone who has been into football commercialisation so that the club can benefit from his or her experience. We want to up our standards as a commercial entity. I am sure that we will unveil the new CEO by next month,” Haiya said.
Bullets turned into a commercial entity some five years ago when Nyasa Manufacturing Company assumed ownership.
