Easterns have appointed former first-class batsman Wesley Coulentianos chief executive officer.
Coulentianos played professional cricket as recently as March 2023, but recently retired.
His first-class cricket spanned a decade – predominantly for Easterns and briefly Border.
What Coulentianos said
“It is a massive honour to have been afforded the position of CEO of a union so close to my heart,” said Coulentianos.
“Eastern Cricket has been an integral part of my life from an early age, and I am excited to have now been given the opportunity to repay the union, and I wish to thank the board for showing their faith in me.
“I look forward to growing Eastern Cricket in reaching new heights and success going forward.”
What Easterns said
Coulentianos is 29 years old and has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Pretoria. Coulentianos at Easterns, like new Border CEO Omphile Ramela, has been afforded a five-year contract.
“The president, board of directors, management and staff take great pleasure in announcing the appointment of Wesley Coulentianos as the chief executive officer,” read a statement from Easterns.
“Wesley is no stranger to the sporting and in particular, cricket industry, as he was the captain of the Benoni-based Eastern Storm team.
“We are looking forward to a long-lasting and cordial working relationship with him. Wesley commences his duty as CEO on 1 June 2023.”
