Cape Town - Eastern Province Cricket CEO, Jesse Chellan, will take up a new post at the International Cricket Council, based in Johannesburg, in September.
Chellan was appointed EPC CEO 17 months ago and has since then made great strides in bringing stability and financial security to the Union.
During his tenure at EPC Chellan has seen many highlights which include EP Cricket being named the most improved affiliate on the Cricket South Africa annual scorecard.
Chellan has also secured a future partnership with the Metro in terms of assisting with the ongoing maintenance of St George’s Park.
"I am grateful for the time I have spent with EP Cricket and the Warriors," Chellan said.
"The last 17 months have been exciting and challenging. Firstly I am thankful to our commercial partners, the staff and players of both EP and the Warriors for their support and contribution.
"The foundations of EP Cricket have been re-established and the organization is ready for rapid growth.
"Secondly, I would like to thank the President of EPC Mr Donovan May, the Chairman of the CEC Board of Directors Mr John Ross-Smith and the Directors of both entities. Their support, guidance and most of all, their trust has contributed significantly to the positive relationship between Management and the Board.
"I have experienced a few Boards in my time and the governance structures and expertise within EP Cricket is very strong and will most certainly continue in the future.
"The Eastern Cape has treated me well and the friendships and memories that I have experienced will stay with me forever. I hope to stay in touch with the journey of cricket in the Eastern Cape and see it fulfill its potential. I have every confidence that this will be achieved."
Chellan will leave at the end of August and the process to recruit a new CEO will commence next week.
