ECB chief exec Collier to retire at end of 2014
LONDON (AP) — The England and Wales cricket board says its chief executive David Collier will retire at the end of 2014 after ten years in the role.
His departure follows that of team director Andy Flower and coaches Graham Gooch and Mushtaq Ahmed, who left in the aftermath of the 5-0 Ashes whitewash in Australia earlier this year.
Collier says that “after 10 years at ECB I believe it is the right time to step aside” and “I am immensely proud of the achievements and the enormous strides forward ... during the past decade.”
Giles Clarke, ECB chairman, says “When we reflect on the past 10 years we will all recognise the huge debt of gratitude which is owed ... to David Collier.”
