Cricket ACT has today announced that Cameron French will be standing down as Chief Executive Officer of the ACT Cricket Association after three years at the helm.

French, who has accepted a senior position with the Australian Sports Commission, said he felt the time was right to seek a new challenge.   

‘I am immensely proud of the achievements of the Cricket ACT team over the past three seasons,” said Mr French

“We have secured and delivered several high-profile matches, seen significant participation growth, revamped our Talent Pathway and constructed our new High Performance base at Phillip Oval.

“I would like to thank the Cricket ACT board for the opportunity and the ACT Cricket Community for their support. I believe I am leaving cricket in a position from which it will flourish in the coming years.”

Cricket ACT Chairman John Miller thanked French for his contribution to the association.

“The last three seasons have been a period of great change for Cricket ACT and we thank Cameron for the contribution he has made to the success over this period.” said Mr Miller

“We wish him every success as he looks to make an impact across the sporting sector.

“As we approach the biggest summer in Canberra’s history, the CEO of our association is a highly sought after position and we will shortly commence a process to find Cameron’s replacement.”

French will continue in the role until Friday 3rd August.
