Cricket Scotland Appoints New CEO
Cricket Scotland has appointed Gus Mackay as its new Chief Executive after a world-wide search supported by specialist consultants.
Gus will take up his new role on 21 October 2019 and brings considerable experience in sports management to the organisation.
For the last 17 years Gus has held senior roles in sports businesses and governing bodies, mainly in cricket but also in other sports. Before that he played cricket professionally in Zimbabwe and in the UK, winning 3 ODI caps for Zimbabwe in 2001 against Australia and New Zealand.
Gus was born and brought up in Zimbabwe but, as his name suggests, has strong Scottish roots with his grandparents hailing from Wick and Duns.
Gus said “This is an exciting time for the game in Scotland and I am delighted to have been appointed Chief Executive of Cricket Scotland. I have been impressed with the clear vision, strategy and more importantly, commitment of the Board to achieve Full Member Status of the International Cricket Council. This will help us achieve our vision to make cricket mainstream in Scotland and thereby ensure the long term sustainability of the game here
