Snowball named new managing director of county cricket

The 53-year-old, who was appointed to his current position in 2016, was described in an ECB statement as “the outstanding choice, from a high-quality list of candidates” following a search led by headhunters SRI

Neil Snowball, the CEO of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, is set to become the new Managing Director of County cricket, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Thursday (January 7).

The 53-year-old Snowball will take over from Gordon Hollis, with the ECB “working closely with Warwickshire CCC in order to agree on a timeline for Snowball’s transition”. Hollis will complete his tenure at the end of January, and with Snowball assuming his new role only later in the year, Derek Brewer will serve in an interim capacity.

“Neil was the outstanding choice, in a high-calibre list of candidates, for a role that is pivotal in our plans to grow the game,” ECB CEO Tom Harrison said. “I am certain that his experience of the issues and opportunities within cricket, in addition to his vast experience across the sporting landscape, will be invaluable to the ECB at a landmark moment for the game.

“This is an exciting time for cricket with GBP 500 million set to be invested into the network over the next five years as we look to support and nurture the core, grow the game and make sure that cricket remains relevant for generations to come,” he added.

Snowball is expected to formally join the ECB in the second quarter of 2020. With Hollins due to leave the organisation at the end of January, former MCC chief exec Derek Brewer will step into the breach in an interim capacity until Snowball arrives.
