ZC abolish franchise CEO posts

HARARE - Zimbabwe Cricket has decided to abolish chief executive posts of the domestic franchise system, replacing them with an administrator as part of an on-going streamlining exercise.

The position of chief operating officer has also been scrapped, with financially troubled ZC announcing a new administrative setup for all five franchises of the country.

As a result, Vimbai Maiswa and Jon Brent, CEOs of Mashonaland Eagles and Manicaland Mountaineers, have not been offered new contracts.

However, Stanley Staddon of Matabeleland Tuskers and Kenyon Ziehl of Midwest Rhinos have been retained in the new business model, but will now be known as franchise administrators.

ZC spokesperson Lovemore Banda confirmed the new developments.

“The ZC business plan called for rationalisation of structures to reduce costs to what the organisation could manage,” Banda told the Daily News yesterday.

“ZC informed the franchise management committees (FMCs) of that position and recommended a franchise structure that did not include posts such as chief executive officer (CEO) and chief operating officer (COO).”
