The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today announced that it will begin recruitment for a new Independent Non-Executive Director to succeed Delia Bushell, following the completion of her three-year term as an ECB Board member in May.
Delia is now engaged in advisory and investment work for the sport and media sectors, so has decided not to seek a second term on the ECB Board given the conflicts that might arise with her new role. She will still be available to operate in an advisory capacity to the ECB Executive team in the future.
Ian Watmore, ECB Chair said: “Delia has been a source of great personal support to me, and her contributions at Board meetings are always full of commercial acumen, strategic insight and love for the game of cricket. I am very grateful for all her efforts over the last three years and am glad we will have the ability to call upon her wise counsel going forward.”
Delia Bushell said: “I have had a fascinating and enjoyable three years on the ECB Board, ranging from development of our strategic growth plans, to the excitement of a World Cup on home soil, and then the challenges brought by the Covid pandemic. I would like to thank all my colleagues and friends at the ECB and wish them every success going forward."
