Kent CEO parts company with cricket club

The St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury

Kent County Cricket Club’s interim chief executive has left his post with immediate effect.

Ben Green replaced Jamie Clifford as interim CEO in February and there had been talk he would take the role on fully.

But last month the club announced that Derbyshire CCC chief executive Simon Storey would be taking up the helm at Kent. It added that Green would switch to chief operating officer.

However, this week Kent issued a statement announcing Green’s departure.

It said: “Kent Cricket can confirm that Ben Green, interim chief executive officer, has left the club, effective from December 3, 2018.

“Kent Cricket would like to acknowledge Ben’s achievements throughout his time at the club and wish him all the best in any future endeavours.

“As previously announced, new chief executive officer, Simon Storey, will commence his role on January 2, 2019. In the meantime, director of cricket, Paul Downton will oversee Kent Cricket affairs.

“The club will not be commenting any further on this matter.”

In other developments at the club, Kent has announced that it is continuing of its partnership with HR GO Recruitment.

The Ashford-based company has a network of offices across the county and more than 60 years’ experience in the sector.

Emma Santer, commercial director at Kent Cricket, said: “I’m delighted that HR GO Recruitment has chosen to continue its partnership with us for the upcoming season.

“It’s fantastic to have a company with such big ties to the local community as the title sponsor of the Harris Room.

“The HR GO Recruitment Harris Room is our main hospitality space at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, and will be used all year round, as well as throughout the exciting upcoming 2019 season.”
