Pat Howard will remain with Cricket Australia until at least 2019.
“Pat is a dynamic, passionate executive and the board and I are delighted that he has agreed to extend his term,” James Sutherland, the Cricket Australia CEO, said. “He has led the evolution of a new team performance structure and success-driven culture for both men’s and women’s cricket in Australia and we see his ongoing contribution as integral to our future plans.
“Among many other things, Pat has driven the improvement of structures and systems that support the Australian Cricket Pathway for all young players, with a firm eye on identifying and nurturing talent at an early stage and enabling them with the best opportunities to perform at the highest possible level.”
“What the previous 12 months has shown is that we have a lot of talent and depth in the system to be ready for these changes. The goal hasn’t changed, we want to be number one in all three formats across men’s and women’s cricket.”
