Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) appoints Todd Greenberg as new permanent Chief Executive Officer. The ACA announced about the new appointment through a media release on January 25 and stated that Greenburg will commence his role as the ACA CEO from 15 February.
The 50-year-old CEO is a former Australian first-grade cricketer who has represented Australia at the Maccabiah Games.
Greenberg is a veteran in administration. He is the former CEO of Australia National Rugby side. Before his appointment, he was tipped for either the ACA position or at Cricket Australia. Being the new CEO, he will be replacing the interim Joe Connellan as ACA has been without a permanent chief since Alistair Nicholson’s resignation.
Greenberg thanked ACA for the upcoming opportunity and said, “I have a long history with cricket – it’s the game I first fell in love with – and am looking forward to the opportunity to work closely on their behalf in partnership with Cricket Australia and the state associations for the good of the game. I am very much looking forward to meeting and speaking to as many players and members as I can over the coming months.”
Cricket Australia touched rock-bottom during the lockdown which saw the board laying off many employees. It has been noted that CA has been relieved from its critical state after India’s full-fledged tour of Australia.
Nick Hockley, CA’s CEO, who steered CA through the pandemic and planned a successful international season alongside two Big Bash tournaments, welcomed Greenberg. He stated that a permanent CEO for ACA was of utmost importance and he further congratulated the new appointee.
Hockley said, “Todd’s experience in administering the National Rugby League will bring valuable insights that will undoubtedly benefit cricket. I look forward to working with him as we complete this summer of cricket and look ahead to 2021-22, which will feature men’s and women’s Ashes series.”
