WILL BROWN

Will Brown was appointed Chief Executive of Gloucestershire in 2013, succeeding Tom Richardson, and is also an integral member of the Executive Board at the club. He has built a career in and around sport - his former employers include Betfair, Sportcal, The Lawn Tennis Association and Cricinfo.

Since Willís appointment, Gloucestershire has had a spectacular success at Lord's winning the Royal London one day cup in 2015. Off the pitch the challenges have been many: getting approval for the installation of the floodlights at Nevil Road, involving liaison with the local community in Bristol as well as the local authority; trying to turn Gloucestershire into a 365-days-a-year business (and not only a cricket club); and sustaining ODI status for Bristol as a venue, to name but a few. Will recently told me that the ICC rules and regulations for hosting the Cricket World Cup (CWC) matches in 2019 run to 800 pages!

With his height, Will cuts a distinctive and unmissable figure on cricket grounds at Bristol and Cheltenham. Away from work and cricket, he lives in Bath with a boisterous young family and supports the local rugby team.
