Cricket Scotland today announces that Gordon Arthur is stepping down from his role as Interim Chief Executive for personal reasons, and will leave his position at the end of April.
Gordon joined Cricket Scotland last July on an initial three-month contract during an extremely challenging time for the sport, and was immediately tasked with steering the organisation through the publication of the “Changing The Boundaries” report.
Since then, working with the board and all interested parties, he has stabilised the business and reconstructed positive relationships to ensure Cricket Scotland has a solid framework to move forward ahead of the new domestic season.
Cricket Scotland Chair, Anjan Luthra, said:
“On behalf of the Board as well as myself, I would like to put on record our thanks to Gordon for his leadership, tireless efforts and patience during what has been an incredibly difficult and challenging period. The results he has achieved in such a short space of time, with such limited resources, have been hugely commendable, as has the support he has provided to the Board. ”
Cricket Scotland has today started the process of appointing a new Interim Chief Executive, who will be charged with further improving the efficiency of the business as it drives towards several major landmarks. The recruitment process for a new permanent Chief Executive will take place at the same time.
Today the Cricket Scotland Chair has published a six-month update on the health of the organisation, which can be found here.
