Applications sought for Nominated Director positions

The revised New Rules were adopted by Members at a Special General Meeting (SGM) held at Leicestershire County Cricket Club yesterday evening (Tuesday, January 15, 2019). The New Rules are now awaiting approval by the FCA.

With Chief Executive Wasim Khan MBE taking up a new position as Managing Director of the Pakistan Cricket Board, the Board of Directors wished to appoint an Interim Chief Executive until a permanent appointment is made.

Roy Bent has been appointed to the role of Interim Chief Executive. Roy is permitted to serve as a director of the Club after having served as Chief Executive of the Club under a special resolution passed at the SGM.

As part of the New Rules, four members of the new Nominations Committee were appointed and ratified at the SGM. Stephen Kind, Tim Day, Danielle Garrity and Professor The Lord Patel of Bradford OBE will be part of the Nominations Committee alongside Leicestershire County Cricket Club Chairman Paul Haywood.

As part of Annex A – Transitional Arrangement within the New Rules, Leicestershire County Cricket Club is now looking for individuals to apply for three Nominated Director positions ahead of the Club’s Annual General Meeting.
