Dr Lachlan Henderson has announced he will step down as CA Chair due to work commitments. 

Dr Henderson will relinquish the role of CA Chair in mid-February and remain on the CA Board. 

Current CA Board member Mike Baird will assume the position at that time following unanimous endorsement from CA Directors and State and Territory Chairs. 

Dr Henderson said: 

“The new role I’ve taken in my home city Perth will make it difficult to devote the time required as Chair, so I have decided this is the right time to hand over the role. 

“It’s been a great privilege to serve as Chair and to help oversee some of the great work being done by the CA executive and across Australian Cricket. 

“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Mike, my fellow CA Board members and all those striving to nurture and grow the game of cricket.” 

Mike Baird said: 

“Lachlan has made a great contribution as Chair and I’m delighted he will continue to provide his considerable business and cricket expertise on the CA Board. 

“It is an honour to take such an important role in Australian cricket at a time when so much exciting work is being done to grow our national sport and take it forward. 

“I’m pleased to have the chance to work even more closely with CEO Nick Hockley and his team and all those working across Australian cricket.”
