Former International Cricket Council (ICC) chief financial officer Faisal Hasnain will succeed Wilfred Mukondiwa as the managing director of Zimbabwe Cricket. Mukondiwa will retire on June 14, 2017 after reaching the retirement age of 65.
Hasnain left his job as ICC chief financial officer in December 2016. The 56-year-old finance and management expert was with the ICC for 12 years in two stints. Apart from the United Arab Emirates, he has also worked in England, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.
Said ZC chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani:
While we regret losing Mukondiwa’s active leadership and guidance, the board is pleased to appoint Hasnain to the role of managing director. We believe his impressive résumé, experience and desire to succeed equip him well for the challenges ahead, and we are confident that he will build upon the strong foundation that Mukondiwa is leaving.
