The appointment of two new directors to the New Zealand Cricket Board was confirmed at NZC’s Annual General Meeting in Christchurch today.
The two new directors are Justin Vaughan and Steven Riddell. They replace Terry Jarvis and Peter Sharp, who did not seek re-appointment.
NZC Chief Executive Martin Snedden congratulated Mr Jarvis and Mr Sharp for their contribution to cricket in New Zealand during their time on the board.
“Both these directors selflessly gave their time and expertise to assist with the governance of cricket in New Zealand and have assisted in steering NZC to develop and maintain cricket as the country’s number one summer game,” he said.
Dr Vaughan is the chief executive of a medical technology company and has played six Test matches and 18 One-Day Internationals for New Zealand. He was the captain of the Auckland team for four seasons and was twice voted Auckland Player of the Year.
Dr Vaughan has served on the board of Auckland Cricket since 2001.
Mr Riddell is a company director who has served on the board of Canterbury Cricket since 2001. He has served on the management committee of the Buller Cricket Association and is a life member of the Buller Cricket Association.
