ASANTE KOTOKO'S marathon and winding search for a vibrant chief executive officer (CEO) is expected end, on Sunday evening, reports Isaac Franklin. The board of directors of Kotoko is leaving no stone unturned, as it seeks for a pristine chap, to manage the club.
A number of interested Kotoko members applied for the CEO post, when the board opened nominations, but a most pristine chap has out-classed his opponents, despite hot chases.
Mr. Jerry Asare, a former Accra representative for the Porcupine Warriors, has emerged the finest choice for the vacant CEO position of Kotoko.
Mr. Asare had a majority vote, in the aftermath of the Kotoko board's thorough scrutiny of the applicants, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, he would succeed the im! mediate past CEO, Major (rtd) Lawrence Yaw Sampene Larson. The ex-Accra representative, who commands the largest support from the club's followers, known as Circles, is a true Kotoko member, financially-sound, and has the requisite managerial skills.
He has contributed immensely towards the betterment of the Porcupine Warriors, notably from the 2003 season, till now.
The former Accra representative has invested over ¢400 million in the club, owing to his colossal affection for the club.
In addition, he possesses the requisite administrative expertise, and a solid educational background.
Mr. Jerry Asare is expected to occupy the hot seat of Kotoko, and would work alongside the existing IMT.
The aim is to ensure a smooth transition, which would prevent a recurrence of the past bitterness between successors and predecessors.
