Cricket Australia (CA) has appointed Dr Simon Longstaff as Independent Ethics Commissioner.

In the new role, Dr Longstaff will have direct access to the CA Chair and Board to advise on ethical matters that might arise, including but not limited to administration, governance, transparency and on or off-field behaviour.

As Executive Director of The Ethics Centre, Dr Longstaff led the independent organisational review into Australian cricket in 2018. CA has actioned the majority of recommendations of this report and Dr Longstaff’s pivotal role in the review makes him an ideal candidate to take up this position.

The Ethics Commissioner role will work collaboratively with the CA Board, State and Territory Associations and the Australian Cricketers’ Association.

Dr Lachlan Henderson, CA Chair, said:

“The creation of the role of CA Ethics Commissioner, and Dr Longstaff’s appointment, are significant steps for Australian cricket.

“Not only have we embraced the key recommendations of The Ethics Centre Review, this initiative will help to ensure the best process to review ethical issues in cricket that might arise in the future.

“The CA Board and our State and Territory colleagues are committed to improving governance structures in cricket and the Ethics Commissioner will provide a vital reference point for issues that impact CA and the game more broadly.

“Having led the 2018 review, Dr Longstaff has a detailed understanding of the challenges the game has faced and the progress that has been made in recent times. We look forward to working with him for the betterment of cricket.”
