Former Hong Kong Cricket boss Tim Cutler is the new CEO of the Vanuatu Cricket Association.
He replaces former Vanuatu player, coach and CEO Shane Deitz, who recently began a new role as coach of the Netherlands women’s cricket team.
Cutler led Hong Kong Cricket from 2015 to 2017 before founding the Emerging Cricket platform and has arrived in Port Vila quitting quarantine this week .
“Vanuatu are one of the leading lights of Associate cricket and I’m honoured to be selected as its CEO,” he said.
“It’s easy to be passionate about what Vanuatu Cricket is doing when you see the joy on the faces of everyone involved. From the innovation shown in broadcasting the first ICC member cricket after the coronavirus caused so much disruption, to initiatives like Women’s Island Cricket Program, the VCA consistently deliver on their mission to create a positive impact in the Pacific through cricket.”
Cutler said already having 10 percent of the population picking up a bat and ball was an achievement with the VCA’s development programmes the beating heart of the success which he believed grew the game while developing community leaders.
