Cricket Scotland has today announced that it is seeking a new Chief Executive following the resignation of Malcolm Cannon who will be leaving in mid-September 2019 to take up a new role outwith sport.
As Cricket Scotland is currently growing and seeing renewed success on the field for the men’s and women’s game, the role offers a unique and exciting opportunity to be part of the organisation’s ambitious strategy.
Following the progress made during Malcolm’s four-year tenure in raising the profile of cricket in Scotland, growing the grassroots game (especially women and girls’ cricket) and securing historic international wins, the new Chief Executive will lead an organisation that is heading towards Full Member status with the International Cricket Council.
Tony Brian, Chair of Cricket Scotland, said: “We will be sad to lose Malcolm who has made a major difference to the organisation and cricket in Scotland during his period of office. We wish him the very best in the next phase of his career and hope he will still join us on the boundary when he can.”
“The role of Chief Executive offers a really exciting opening for someone to build on our success and make their mark on the game in Scotland and internationally. We believe that, with the progress made in the last four years, the role will attract a wide range of very capable candidates to drive forward Cricket Scotland’s ambitious strategy. The role will be advertised in the next few weeks.”
Malcolm Cannon said: “It has been a huge honour to be part of Cricket Scotland these past four years and a privilege to work with an exceptionally dedicated and skilled team who lead the sport with pride and belief. I am proud of what we have accomplished as a team on behalf of our stakeholders and of the increased presence we have achieved on a global level.
“I am convinced that Cricket Scotland will continue to be an increasingly strong force in world sport and that it can achieve its ambitious aims. I wish everyone all the success in the world and I shall watch progress from the boundary with a sense of pride and belonging.”
