Thabang Moroe appointed as new acting CEO of Cricket South Africa
Former president of the GCB, Chairman of the bizhub Highveld Lions and CSA’s vice president has been appointed by the Board as the new acting CEO of Cricket South Africa.
After being elected to the Board in 2012, Moroe was elected as the GCB representative on the CSA Board after the CSA appointed Administrator, Ray Mali, had stepped down. In August of 2013, Moroe was elected to head up both the organisations.
During his time as the Non-Executive Head of the two cricket bodies, Moroe’s leadership has been characterized as being fair and keeping the best interests of cricket, as a whole, at heart at all times. He took over the leadership of the Company after a turbulent time and together with Chief Executive Officer, Greg Fredericks, they led the GCB to stability and renewed confidence in the organisation.
At Board level, Moroe spearheaded the inclusion of Independent Directors to ensure that the GCB has the expertise of industry professionals to assist in administering and governing the GCB at a high level of professionalism and strategic foresight, whilst ensuring that the integrity of the game of cricket was upheld at all times.
Moroe’s appointment as CSA Vice-President was considered to be a product of the young administrator’s dedication and leadership of the game over the past few years.
