London: The International Cricket Council (ICC) is seeking to recruit a senior financial executive to join the organisation as its first chief financial officer (CFO). The appointment forms part of the ICC's publicly stated strategy of building a high calibre team of professional executives to strengthen and develop its management of the international game, an official press release said. Working from the ICC's commercial operation in Monaco, the CFO will report to London based chief executive officer Malcolm Speed, with responsibility for a wide ranging financial management brief. "The financial remit of the ICC has grown enormously since the signing of the World Sports Group/News Corporation agreement in June 2000, which guarantees the game a minimum income of $ 550 million up to the year 2007," ICC chief executive officer Malcolm Speed said. "That, together with the planned commercial expansion of the organisation, makes it essential that a top quality financial executive is recruited to manage this vital function," Speed said. Details of the chief financial officer's post are available on the Websites www.icc.cricket.org and firstname.lastname@example.org.
