Andrew Ingleton has been named as the new chief executive of Cricket Victoria (CV), the organising body for cricket in the Australian state of Victoria.
He replaces former Australian Test bowler Tony Dodemaide, who announced his resignation at the start of August after a decade in the role.
Ingleton will assume his new position in early March 2018. He joins CV from Cricket Australia (CA), where he has been the national governing body’s executive general manager of game and market development for the past five years.
Prior to his career in cricket, Ingleton held a range of senior management and executive level positions in the corporate sector with Dulux Australia and internationally with Orica Mining in Latin America.
"After a thorough and extensive process, we are delighted to have secured Andrew as the organisation's next chief executive,” said Russell Thomas, chairman of CV. “He brings a wealth of consumer and commercial expertise to our business.
"In addition to being a proven business leader in both the sporting and commercial sectors, Andrew has an excellent strategic understanding of the challenges ahead of us from his time with Cricket Australia. We are confident Andrew is the right person to lead us through the next phase of our strategic plan and our settling into the Victorian Cricket and Community Centre in St Kilda."
Ingleton added: "This is a tremendous opportunity at a key point in Cricket Victoria's history. I look forward to building relationships with our local community at our exciting new headquarters and with the broader Victorian cricket community in general.
"Cricket Victoria has a crucial role to play at every level of our game - from building our grassroots facilities, clubs and participation through to successful Big Bash franchises and producing more Australian cricketers. I'm looking forward to working with the dedicated Cricket Victoria team to deliver on our objectives in the years ahead."
