King backing merger


Share post:

A former long-standing director of sports at the National Sports Council (NSC) has no objection to its proposed amalgamation with two other entities but cautions that the head of a new entity should be given the administrative support to function efficiently.

Erskine King, who served as head of the NSC from 1998 before retiring in April this year, suggested that the top executive be given the support of deputy managers with specific responsibilities if the planned merger materialises with Gymnasium Limited and Kensington Oval Management Inc. (KOMI).

“Anybody who is at the top must be given the opportunity to think and be able to conceptualise different areas for moving the organisation forward,” King told the WEEKEND NATION.

“If that person is going to be bogged down with the day-to-day running of the organisation, it is not going to work. There is no one superhuman that can do it. If you have the support, it can be done.”

King’s comments come against the background of the recent appointment of financial analyst Jerry Blenman as an executive consultant to assume responsibility for the management of the NSC and Gymnasium Limited, in the first instance.
