New Vipers CEO Simon Peter Njuba has vowed to lift the club to greater heights following his appointment.
Njuba was unveiled on Tuesday at Kitende by Vipers legal director Alex Luganda.
He beat other 85 candidates that had applied for the role of Vipers CEO.
“This is the very active post that requires seriousness and a lot of focus, I must say that I am very happy to be part of the greatest club,” an excited Njuba said.
“What I can promise is to deliver to the expectations of taking us above the level of where we are at the moment.
“I would expect a good time at the club and do always execute my roles very well, and my coming here is the right choice by the club.”
Vipers who won the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League, will be hoping to defend their crown and also reach the CAF Champions League group stages next season.
His work as the club CEO involves running the day-to-day activities of the club.
He will head the Secretariat at the club and work under the guidance of the Vipers board.
Njuba was holding the position temporarily after the departure of Peter Lwanga since January this year.
“My experience has made me quite exceptional, I have dealt with management issues at the club especially when it comes with player registration processes and players transfers,” Njuba added.
“So I must say that I have been part of the Secretariat of the club for the long time and competing with the rest (of other 85 candidates) gives me the motivation to work harder because like you know the process was a very tough one and I must say that it is an honour to have gone through as a successful candidate.”
