The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has appointed Ian Lovett as the new President. He was selected after the thorough process that took place within the board. Ian Lovett has got decent experience and also fluent with great ideas to develop the game of cricket in England.
The new president will take the role with the immediate effect. Previously, he worked as the Middlesex Chairman and ECB Deputy Chairman. He was elected via a process in which potential candidates were put forward to the Nominations Committee by the 41 stakeholders of the ECB.
I am hugely excited to take the role – Ian Lovett
Speaking of the appointment, the ECB Chairman Colin Grooves quoted that Ian Lovett has been an exception in his service for England and got the ingredients to be the president of the respective board.
Meanwhile, Ian Lovett quoted that he is pretty excited to take the new role for England. Further, Lovett added that he will be helping the board in all the possible way for the betterment of the game.
“Ian is a fantastic choice. He has a long-held love of the game and a deep knowledge of the value it brings to people. Through being a player and volunteer at his local club and high-profile roles at both Middlesex and ECB. Ian has also been a driving force in the governance changes that lead to greater diversity and better decision-making in the governing body,” ECB Chairman Colin Groves quoted.
“Hugely excited to be taking on this new role. I am passionate about our aims to grow the game. And also, to do that we need to work collaboratively with everyone involved in the sport at all levels, particularly the army of volunteers upon whom we are so reliant. I will do all that I can to help with that,” Ian Lovett added.
However, it has been a great day for Ian Lovett to receive the promotion in his work. Hopefully, the latest appointment would work in favour of the England Cricket and Wales Board (ECB).
