David Griffin has stepped down from the Derbyshire County Cricket Club Supervisory Board after 15 years’ voluntary service on the Club’s governing body.
The former Honorary Secretary vacates his position as Administration Director having overseen recent successful transformations in Club governance and cricket management.
With those two projects complete, Griffin felt the time was right to continue his lifelong support solely from the boundary’s edge and away from the boardroom.
He said: “I’ve enjoyed 15 wonderful years as part of the Club’s management structure and have worked with some very talented and committed people. I wish everyone at the Club – on and off the field – every success, and look forward to continuing my support of the Club for many years to come.”
Chairman Chris Grant said: “David has worked tirelessly for the Derbyshire cause for many years and we thank him for his excellent service.
“I particularly pay tribute to his work on the change in the Club’s corporate governance which paved the way for ground development funding from the ECB.
“He has the best interests of the Club at heart and will remain a focal point for knowledge and information moving forward.”
Griffin has been a Member of Derbyshire for over four decades, joining the General Committee in 1999 and becoming Honorary Secretary six years later.
He retained that position until becoming the first Administration Director of the Supervisory Board in March 2013.
