Vipers SC appoint new Chief Executive Officer

Must read

Uganda Premier League champions Vipers Sports Club have confirmed Simon Peter Njuba as the new club’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Njuba replaces Peter Lwanga, who was relieved of his duties in January 2020.

Vipers Legal Director and Executive Member Alex Luganda performed the ceremony of handing over the instruments of power to Njuba, who emerged extraordinary out of an elite roster of 85 applicants.

Speaking at the unveiling of Njuba at the St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende, Luganda confirmed that the selection for the most important job at the Venoms was thouroughly and ethically done through a Human Resource firm whose final shortlist comprised of six names.

Nujba has been given a renewable two-year deal.

“It was a very competitive race,” disclosed Luganda according to the Vipers SC website.

“The firm confirmed to us that the best candidate that will take us forward is Simon Peter Njuba. Our job now is to make sure that we give him the necessary support.”

Working on a two-year contract, Njuba is tasked with providing proper management and direction to the club that will be equally hungry and anxious to leave a mark on the continent in the CAF Champions League.

“I have some good experience in football,” said an excited Njuba told the Vipers media team soon after his unveiling ceremony.

“I have also dealt with the federation before so it will not be hard for me to manage this job. I will make sure I fulfill the obligations of the club.”

Enriched with vast experience, Njuba will be working in a familiar environment as he looks to tick the boxes as per the club’s wishes as well as ensure the operations within and club’s external relations grow into fruition.

“I am very humbled to work with champions and I am coming with a champion’s mentality. I also know the job comes with pressure to deliver but I am prepared for the task at hand to ensure Vipers stay at the top; both sporting and management wise,” Njuba said with an assertive voice.
