Hearts of Oak chairman Togbe Afede XIV says the club is in search of a full time paid Chief Executive.
The Phobians are without a substantive CEO following the decision of Fred Crentsil not to extend his stay after his two year contract expired in September.
The club is currently being steered by an adhoc management team with its members yet to be made public.
Hearts’ chairman however says the next appointed CEO will be a shift from the outdated concept of a part time worker.
“Let me emphasize the important need for us to change course in terms of the former concept of a CEO of Accra Hearts of Oak,” he told Angel FM.
“I personally I am uncomfortable with a CEO who cannot be a full time servant of the Oak tree.
“I don’t see how a CEO can devote full time to our club if he is not on salary, I don’t see how it works.
“We want a change of direction, we want a professional manager who will devote 100 percent of his time to Accra Hearts of Oak.
“Which means that some of the names being bundled around may not be consistent with the current thinking.
“We want people who will come to Hearts of Oak expecting to be paid salary or some agreed remuneration.
“So the Board is working very tirelessly to get the desired caliber of persons to head the management team of Accra Hearts of Oak and I can assure supporters that this is what we are looking very hard on.”
Hearts are also in search of a coach following the decision to sack CK Akunnor after a string of poor results.
