Ghana Premier League side, Karela United FC has appointed Mr Elloeny Amande as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), ahead of the 2019/2020 league season.
Mr Amande, a lawyer by profession as well as an astute broadcaster and marketer, has worked with different media outfits including the Multimedia and Media General groups, as host of flagship sports programmes.
As a passionate football fan, his stint in marketing took off 10 years ago when he branched from broadcasting into a sports sponsorship management role with the Black Stars, managing the Sponsorship relationship between Gold Fields Ghana Limited as headline sponsors of the senior national team and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
After his appointment, the new CEO said, “as a son of the land, I am excited to be able to bring my expertise in marketing; media and law to help my home region club Karela FC fulfil the objectives that the founders set for the club. I am grateful to the board for this opportunity to serve and I am confident that we would be successful on and off the pitch”.
Madam Abena Brigidi, the Chairperson of the Board said, the club in its relatively young existence has had many successes and they believe that the appointment would further enhance the tradition of sound management and development of their home region.
According to a statement released by the club on Tuesday, the club has also appointed Nii Armah Ashong-Katai as its Communications Manager.
The two appointments are part of the formation of the club’s new management as the club would appoint other members of the management team in the coming days.
