Havill appointed ECB Acting Chief Executive

Brian Havill, the England and Wales Cricket Board's Finance Director and Company Secretary, has taken on the additional role of Acting Chief Executive following the announcement that David Collier is to retire at the end of the current cricket season.

Mr Havill has been at ECB since August 2000, joining them from Pentland Group (owners of Speedo, Kickers, Ellesse and several other sports and fashion brands) where he was Commercial Director of Pentland Sports Group. On a voluntary basis, he served on the Council of the Lawn Tennis Association between 2008 and 2013 and he is currently an independent member on the Audit Committee of the Sport & Recreational Alliance. His appointment allows retiring CEO David Collier the time to conclude specific projects for both ECB and the ICC.
