Outgoing CEO Faul says CSA in ‘good shape’

Johannesburg, Feb 1: Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) outgoing chief executive Jacques Faul has said he believes he is leaving CSA in good shape.

Faul, who will be leaving CSA soon to join the Northern Cricket Union, Ireland as chief executive, said that CSA is in a good financial and cricketing health, and added the board had managed to attract new sponsors and bolster existing sponsors of their perfect governance structures, Sport24 reports.

Expressing his gratitude to CSA for their support, Faul said that although it had been a challenging task for him over the past year, CSA staff had helped him to keep all operations running smoothly, even in uncertain times.

According to Faul, new members, including a new president and vice-president, will be elected to the board under approved governance principles, at the upcoming CSA’s annual general meeting.

Wishing luck to his successor, Faul said the appointment of a new CEO was well on track and he was confident the procedure would be completed by the end of February.

Faul also expressed his gratitude to the North West Cricket board, where he was a CEO, and said that he had improved both as a player and an administrator because of the training he received at the board.

Faul will be replacing former CEO Elise Lombard, who died in August last year. (ANI)
