The board of New Zealand Cricket has elected Martin Snedden as its new chairman. Mr Snedden will fill the role vacated by Greg Barclay, who was required to stand down from the position after being elected chairman of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Mr Snedden is a former chief executive of NZC and a board member of the organisation from 1990-1992, from 1999-2001, and again from 2013 until present.

He has vast experience in the business of sport, having held roles as chief executive of Rugby World Cup 2011, Duco Promotions, and Tourism Association NZ, as well as being a director of the World Masters Games 2017.A former New Zealand Test cricketer, he will now fill the role as NZC’s representative on the board of the ICC, a task with which he is very familiar, having been seconded to the role in 2013 and 2014 during Stuart Heal’s tenure, as well as being a member of the ICC chief executives committee from 2001-2007.

Mr Snedden will immediately stand down from his role as consultant lead of the One Cricket project, a three-year initiative aimed at reviewing and improving the delivery of cricket throughout the country. He said he was honoured to be taking the role of NZC chair at a time when the organisation was in such good shape and had been led so capably by his predecessor.

“I’d like to thank Greg for the outstanding direction and guidance he’s given the board since being elected as chair in 2016,” said Mr Snedden.

“It is a measure of the success he has overseen in this role that he has now been elected the ICC chair.

“Equally, I’d like to thank my fellow NZC directors for their support.

“I know that, together with chief executive David White and his excellent management team, we’ll help lead the sport out of this global pandemic and embrace a strong and sustainable future.

“I look forward to working with the members of NZC, the Major Associations and Districts Associations, as well as the New Zealand Cricket Players Association and the wider cricket family in New Zealand.”

Mr Snedden is currently part of the NZC Board’s “Women in Governance” project sub-committee, and a member of the board’s High-Performance Advisory Group. He holds positions as chair of Heart of the City, and Destination Auckland, is a director on the board of Women in Sport Aotearoa, and a trustee of the Cricketers’ Hardship Trust.
