Somerset County Cricket Club (Somerset CCC) has appointed Andrew Cornish as Chief Executive.
In a statement the Somerset CCC said:
Andrew is a highly experienced and successful individual who has held important Chief Executive roles in leading businesses, most latterly as CEO of Liverpool Airport Holdings Ltd. His track record in delivering customer service, developing companies, and together with the delivery of major infrastructure projects make him, in our opinion, ideally suited to take on the challenges facing the Club in the years ahead. These include establishing floodlights at the Cooper Associates County Ground, delivering World Cup matches in 2019, navigating through the complexities of a new T20 tournament and, most importantly, ensuring that Somerset remain a superbly competitive Cricket Club.
Andrew will work brilliantly with our department heads and, importantly, has the personal attributes that will enable him to engage with our superb Membership and provide cricket in a ground offering ever-improving facilities. Above all he shares our abiding commitment to do all that we can to bring trophies back to Taunton.
