The Chief Executive Officer of the National Communications Network, Molly Hassan, has tendered her resignation to the board of the company, giving them three month’s notice as stipulated by her contract.
Hassan served in the position for just over a year and a half and her decision to move on from the company is expected to trigger the search for a new CEO by the company.
Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, who has portfolio responsibility for the state media, had wanted Hassan to be transferred to the Marketing Director’s position while a new CEO was being sought.
But News Source understands that Hassan has decided to call it quits completely and move on from the state-owned radio and tv station.
A new board for NCN was appointed and installed back in September but has been moving at a snail’s pace with reforms at the local radio and television network. NCN continues to run at a big loss with over 150 persons still in its employ.
There have also been concerns expressed to senior government officials that some members of the board have been overreaching into the daily management of NCN. It is unclear whether those concerns may have played a role in the CEO deciding to move on.
