Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) has appointed former General Manager at Blink Logistics Mr. John Walusimbi, as their new CEO.

UCA announced this development on Thursday following a recruitment process that spanned four months.

Walusimbi has signed a three-year contract, replacing Allan Mugume who tendered in his resignation in September last year.

He joins UCA with a ton of experience in both logistics and financial sectors. He not only held leadership positions at Blink Logistics, he also served as the Operations Manager at KCB Uganda Limited.

He hopes to put this experience of over 15 years to use as he seeks to leave a mark at the Association.

Speaking to the Association media in his first interview, Walusimbi said he is looking at ‘increasing international recognition’ for both national teams.

“As I accept the role of CEO at the Uganda Cricket Association, I am humbled and honored to lead
this esteemed organization into its next phase of growth.

“My vision is to increase international recognition and operational excellence from national, regional to international fame. I am dedicated to collaborating closely with both Men and Women teams, various stakeholders and community to achieve this vision while promoting excellence, inclusive, and sustainable progress.

“I will build on past achievements, leverage innovative programs and strategic partnerships to elevate Ugandan
cricket globally. I am excited to embark on this journey and grateful for the opportunity to serve”

Walusimbi joins UCA at a time Uganda is preparing for its first ever senior appearance at the World Cup.

It’s a historical year for Uganda, but Michael Nuwagaba, Chairman, UCA is hopeful similar or ‘greater heights’ will be achieved under the new CEO.

“The board has full confidence in John and look forward to greater heights under his stewardship at the Secretariat,” he said.
