Wasim Khan has been appointed as new managing director of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), after a comprehensive two-phase selection process, which saw over 350 candidates expressing their interest following an advertisement for this position, the PCB said in a statement. The list was reduced to three candidates, who were interviewed by PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani, and assisted by Asad Ali Khan and Javed Zia.
Commenting on his appointment, Wasim said: “I am delighted to be offered the position of managing director of PCB – a role which I have accepted as a challenge. “I have my roots in Pakistan, a country which is full of talent. I will be relocating to Pakistan with my family who are as excited as I am.”
The PCB chairman welcomed the new managing director and said, “We welcome Wasim who will be joining the PCB soon. He was selected unanimously following robust interview process with some seriously good candidates. I must thank each and every applicant who participated in this process. “Wasim brings with him fresh ideas and knowledge of cricket, and he will receive the support of the board and the management of PCB,” Mani said. “We have started the process of revamping the PCB and under Wasim, we now have an experienced leader of the management team who will oversee the implementation of the board’s decisions. His first task would be to oversee the reforms of domestic cricket structure.”
Wasim Khan, an MBA from Warwick Business School (one of the top-10 business schools in the world), is a former professional cricketer with a wealth of experience in cricket and cricket management.
