The ACT Cricket Association welcomes the announcement today of Dr Lachlan Henderson's appointment as the new Cricket Australia Chair.
Cricket ACT Chair Greg Boorer congratulated Dr Henderson on his appointment, “Cricket ACT wishes to congratulate Dr Lachlan Henderson on this prestigious appointment,” Mr Boorer said.
“We look forward to the leadership that Dr Henderson and the CA Board will continue to provide to all States and Territories, and we will continue to work closely together to grow the sport of cricket across the Canberra region.”
Dr Henderson, who will commence immediately, signalled his first priorities would be ensuring a strong, sustainable financial future for cricket, increased participation, particularly among girls and women, improved consultation with state and territory chairs and all stakeholders, and continuing to drive high standards of behaviour across the game.
The appointment follows a thorough process that involved a leading recruitment firm and considered a range of internal and external candidates.
It included consultation with the boards of all state and territory cricket associations, which were invited to provide feedback on suitable candidates and their views regarding the requirements of the role.
Following interviews with a short-list of candidates, the CA board was unanimous in its decision to elect Dr Henderson as chair.
All state and territory chairs expressed their support for Dr Henderson’s election.
