New Zealand Cricket elects first woman President

New Zealand Cricket elects first woman President
November 16, 2016

Former White Ferns captain Debbie Hockley and International Cricket Council Hall of Famer has been elected the first female President in New Zealand Cricket’s (NZC) 122-year history.

Hockley’s three-year appointment, replacing outgoing President Stephen Boock, was confirmed at NZC’s annual general meeting in Christchurch.

Another former White Fern, Ingrid Cronin-Knight, was also appointed as an NZC Director at the AGM.

Cronin-Knight, who has experience in grass-roots cricket governance, is currently serving an internship on the board of Watercare, and is a founding member of Women in Sport Aotearoa (WISPA).

She fills the vacancy created by the departure of Stuart Heal, who steps down after eight years on the board, including the past three as Chairman.

At the first meeting of the new board, held directly after the conclusion of the AGM, director Greg Barclay was elected the NZC Chairman.

The AGM heard that NZC returned an operating loss of $2.16 million for the 2015/16 year - significantly better the forecast loss of $5 million, due mainly to increased gate-takings and increased distributions from the International Cricket Council.
