Berekum Chelsea owner Emmanuel Kyeremeh was voted onto the Emergency Committee of the GFA to replace Fred Crentsil on Tuesday.
Kyeremeh defeated Admon Munkaila in the election by grabbing 13 of the 18 votes.
He takes over from Crentsil who was named as the vice president of the GFA earlier in the day.
Kyeremeh comes in with his rich experience in the banking industry and an accomplished accountant.
Kyeremeh, who led the young Chelsea team to qualify for the 2012 Champions League after just eight years of existence, says he will use his experience to further boost the game in Ghana.
“I am already familiar with the way the game is run in this country and in this position I will be able to use my experience in football administration to further improve the game of football in Ghana,” Kyeremeh said.
“Football administration in Ghana has many experienced people and I will join them with my experience and expertise to continue to develop the game.”
He is the general manager of NDK Financial Services, one of the respected banking organizations in the country
