Cricket Australia announces new CEO


//

Cricket Australia has announced its next CEO, with Kevin Roberts unveiled as the man to replace the governing body's outgoing chief James Sutherland.

Chairman David Peever made the announcement this morning and described Roberts as the “best candidate for our organisation”.

Roberts was at the forefront of pay dispute negotiations with Australian cricketers last year and was seen as the favourite to take over from Sutherland.

CA Chairman David Peever said it was hard to ignore Roberts for the position.

“Our position within the Australian community and as a representative on the global stage is key to our success. Kevin is the best candidate for our organisation and has been given a clear mandate by the Board to deliver our strategy to ensure cricket maintains a strong and sustainable foothold in sport locally and globally.  

“Given the complexity of the role and the increasing challenges facing our sport, the Board concluded that an internal candidate with first-hand experience driving strategic transformation and engagement at CA would be best placed to help ensure continued success for Australian cricket.  


James Sutherland.

“Kevin’s vast corporate leadership experience within Australia and overseas, his leadership of the development and implementation of our strategy, his demonstrated ability to lead change through the One Team transformation, and his deep pedigree in cricket both on and off the field, outline why Kevin was identified as the best candidate from a very strong list. 

Roberts said he's looking forward to taking on the new role.

“It is a great privilege and responsibility to lead and serve the cricket community as CEO of Cricket Australia. I thank the Board for this opportunity and look forward to commencing in the role,” Roberts said.

“One of the many things I love about cricket as our national sport is its ability to bring people together and inspire us, regardless of our age, gender or cultural background.

“Our success is made possible by the hard work of Cricket Australia employees, players, coaches and State & Territory Cricket Associations, along with the contribution of volunteers who are the lifeblood of our game in the community."
