USACA appoint Lockerbie as CEO
The United States of America Cricket Association (USACA) has announced the appointment of Don Lockerbie as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Lockerbie emerged as the organization’s choice from a large pool of highly qualified applicants for the position. He is highly-regarded as a sports organizer and event administrator.
USACA’s Treasurer John Thickett commented: “After a rigorous three-month recruiting process in which we assessed applicants from all over the world, we are thrilled to announce that Don Lockerbie will be joining us.
“We have great expectations of what he can bring to US cricket and see a bright future under his leadership as CEO. All the Board members are excited about working with Don.”
Lockerbie is best known in cricketing circles as the Chief Operating Officer & Venue Development Director of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 in the West Indies. In that role he was responsible for overseeing the design and development of 12 cricket stadia in nine Caribbean countries in the four years.
A former track & field star and head coach at the University of North Carolina, Lockerbie is well respected in international cricketing circles for his passion, professionalism and commitment to all his endeavors.
USACA’s President Gladstone Dainty remarked: “Don brings a robust dynamism to USACA at a time when it is urgently needed. His proven track record is exactly what’s required to attract interest and support for the development of cricket in America.
“He’s a team-player and will no doubt succeed with the support of America’s diverse group of stakeholders, while bridging the gap of interest in the sport between the current enthusiasts and our untapped American resources.”
Lockerbie, who starts on April 1, said: “I am extremely humbled and honored to be selected by the USACA board for the new post of Chief Executive Officer of the United States of America Cricket Association.
“I am familiar with the working nature of cricket on the international landscape and I look forward to utilizing this experience to be a new and proactive resource for American cricket and our dedicated cricketers.”
