CV said discussions over Ingleton’s departure had been going on since the start of the year
Andrew Ingleton has resigned as Cricket Victoria chief executive with Nick Cummins, the BBL general manager with the state, appointed to an interim position.
Ingleton, who held the role for three years, oversaw a period where Cricket Victoria significantly cut back on its community cricket staff as part of major job losses during the early stages of the pandemic.
Cricket Victoria also disbanded the boards of the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades which made the two chief executive positions redundant.
In a statement, Cricket Victoria said discussions over Ingleton’s departure had been going on since the start of the year.
“I’d like to thank the board, senior management and staff for the opportunity to lead and work with them over the last three years. Our people are an outstanding group of dedicated professionals who are passionate about seeing cricket continue to thrive in this state,” Ingleton said.
“I’d also like to extend special thanks to all of our players, coaches and support staff for their extraordinary commitment and resilience during 2020-21 to deliver a successful season, against all the odds.”
“I’m proud of the on-field performance of our Big Bash clubs and our men’s and women’s state teams and believe Cricket Victoria has unearthed some future stars for Australian cricket.
Cricket Victoria chair David Maddocks said: “At a personal level I’d like to sincerely thank Andrew for the leadership, support and passion he has invested as chief executive over the last three years. The season we have just completed has come with some extraordinary challenges, but the organisation is well-positioned to recover from the Covid impacts and reinvest in Victorian cricket,”
