The New Zealand Cricket Players’ Association (NZCPA) is delighted to congratulate its Chairman, Scott Weenink, on his appointment as the new Chief Executive of New Zealand Cricket (NZC).
Heath Mills, NZCPA Chief Executive said “It’s fantastic to see NZC appoint Scott Weenink to this very important role in cricket in New Zealand and we believe he will do a great job.”
“Scott has been a director of the NZCPA for six years and chairman for the past four years. During that time we’ve benefited greatly from his significant commercial acumen and experiences, both in New Zealand and overseas, but also his understanding of high performance sport as a former first class cricket and rugby player. He has made an excellent contribution to the NZCPA and we’ve particularly appreciated his governance expertise, strategic thinking, understanding of player IP rights and our associated commercial agreements, and also his wise counsel to our staff.”
“We wish him every success in the new role and thank him for his service.”
Scott Weenink said “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to sit on the Board of the NZCPA over the last six years and contribute to the success of that organisation during that time. Highlights for me include the signing of the latest Collective Agreement with NZC which established amongst other things, gender pay parity arrangements. The NZCPA is an outstanding organisation that has contributed greatly to the success of cricket in New Zealand since its inception, and I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with the NZCPA to further the best interests of cricket in NZ as a whole.”
Scott Weenink has stood down from his role as Chairman of the NZCPA with immediate effect and, following a meeting of the NZCPA board last night, Ross Verry has been appointed Acting Chairman through to the Annual General Meeting in November this year.
