The board will likely appoint a permanent CEO soon
As Amin takes the chair temporarily, the office bearers will be looking for a full-time replacement.
Recent reports suggest that the nomination process for appointing the next CEO is likely to be decided in the impending Apex Council meeting (on July 17).
In the scheduled meeting, the board members will also discuss the appointment of "new employees".
Hemang Amin will serve as CEO for nearly two months
Hemang Amin is also the Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the IPL.
He has been named the (interim) BCCI CEO at a time when several posts in the board are vacant.
A BCCI official recently stated that he will not be remunerated the way his predecessor Rahul Johri was.
Furthermore, he will be associated with his new role for nearly two months.
BCCI accepted Rahul Johri's resignation last week
Earlier, Rahul Johri resigned as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BCCI.
The cricket board accepted his resignation last week.
Johri, who was given an extension till April 30, left before the end of his five-year contract.
His contract was due to expire next year.
He decided to part ways following the appointment of Sourav Ganguly-led set-up by Supreme Court's Committee of Administrators (CoA).
