Uganda Premier League side Vipers SC have completed the process of selecting a new Chief Executive Officer, it’s official.
The League champions have appointed Simon Peter Njuba as the next club CEO.
The post of a new CEO was advertised in May this year and 85 candidates had applied.
“We had a very open and transparent but equally transparent process of getting the new CEO of the biggest club in this country and the current champions of the UPL,” said Vipers Legal director Alex Luganda.
Luganda added that the club engaged a team of consultants to manage the process for the team.
From the 85 candidates, six were shortlisted for the final interviews and these faced the team of consultants that were recruited by the club for purposes of getting a new CEO who would meet the demands of the club and fulfil the vision of the club.
“The consultants gave us the results of the six candidates and on behalf of the executive,” Luganda added. “I would like to thank all the 85 applicants who expressed interest in serving Vipers SC, but just like the advert had indicated, we needed one CEO at the time.”
“May I at this juncture, on behalf of Vipers management and executive unveil the long awaited CEO of the club – Simon Peter Njuba who is the best candidate.”
Njuba who is also a teacher at St Mary’s SS Kitende, replaces Peter Lwanga who was relieved of his duties in January this year.
He has been in charge temporarily since Peter Lwanga was fired.
