Tom Sears is the new CEO of Cricket Kenya

Cricket Kenya Press Release:

Cricket Kenya is pleased to announce that it has agreed terms with Mr Tom Sears to take over the vacant position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Cricket Kenya.

The panel of selectors for the new CEO included the office bearers of Cricket Kenya, the chairmen of the 3 provinces, Richard Done of ICC and Cassim Suliman (CEO of Africa Cricket Association).

Tom Sears is currently the Head of Business Development of New Zealand Cricket. He was formerly Chief Executive Officer of Derbyshire CCC (2005 -2008) and before that the Commercial Director of Worcestershire CCC (2000-2005). In terms of experience, he was in the eyes of the panel the most ideally suited candidate to take on this job given the breadth of his commercial and administrative experience and the reports received from those who have worked with him. The panel is confident that with his background and skills, Kenya’s cricket development will be in very capable hands.

Mr Sears, who is 40 years old, is of English extraction. He is married with three children.

He will accompany Mr Inamdar as one of Kenya’s two delegates to the ICC’s Annual Conference in Singapore (26th June – 1st July 2010) before commencing his duties in Kenya on 19th July 2010.
