New Zealand Cricket Board member Justin Vaughan has been appointed to the position of NZC chief executive.
“I am pleased to announce Justin as the incoming chief executive,” NZC Board chairman Sir John Anderson said today.
“As an NZC Board member, a former BLACKCAP and a successful chief executive officer, Justin has all the attributes required to take over from Martin Snedden and to lead New Zealand Cricket.
“Justin has impressed as a member of the NZC Board, and his time on the Board will see him quickly settle into the chief executive role.”
Dr Vaughan represented New Zealand in six Test matches and 18 One-Day Internationals from 1992 until 1997.
He is a qualified medical practitioner and is currently the chief executive of BrainZ instruments, an Auckland based medical technology company listed on the ASX.
“I am looking forward to beginning the role of New Zealand Cricket CEO,” Dr Vaughan said.
“I have had a long association with cricket and hope to build on the hard work which has taken cricket in New Zealand from a largely amateur structure in the early 1990s to the professional sport that it is today.
“I will continue to ensure a focus on all aspects of the game from the grassroots through to the White Ferns and BLACKCAPS,” he said.
Dr Vaughan begins the role on June 7.
