The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has promoted Hemang Amin to the role of chief operating officer of the Indian Premier League Twenty20 competition.
Amin most recently served as the BCCI’s assistant general manager of finance, commercial and events, a position which saw him oversee the management and operations of the IPL.
He has worked at the BCCI for the past seven years and will continue to report to the governing body’s chief executive, Rahul Johri, in his new role.
The IPL has been without a chief operating officer since Sundar Raman resigned from the role in November 2015.
Acting BCCI president CK Khanna said: “Mr. Amin has been instrumental during a pivotal transition period for the IPL. His leadership over the past seven years has shaped IPL’s strategy, laying a strong foundation for future course, improvements and success.”
IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla added: “Mr. Hemang Amin is a wonderful executive with an incredible breadth of experience and relationships across a variety of markets and our stakeholders. Having worked with him first hand, I know he will be a fine leader for the IPL and will bring unmatched innovation, passion, and vision to the role.”
