Crummy resigns from NZC as deputy chief
|| Desk Report ||
New Zealand Cricket’s (NZC) deputy chief Anthony Crummy has stepped down from his post as the board cut off 15 percent of its workforce as part of strict measures to restrain the impact of the COVID-19.
Behind the cause of his abrupt resignation, Crummy said he was not asked to leave and his departure at this moment is a mere coincidence.
“People have made that connection with the timing but I’ve been thinking about what I do next for a couple of months,” said Anthony Crummy, who joined New Zealand Cricket in 2015 from Rugby.
“I’ve been at NZC five years and loved every minute of it and focused on some pretty big projects. I finished one of those (projects) and thought it might be time, so I had that chat pre-COVID. The time is right for me,” Crummy was quoted as saying by an English daily.
Crummy also believes that the organisation is going to run well while dealing with the financial impact caused by the deadly virus.
“It’s tough times and there’s going to be an impact as David has said on the record. It’s been navigated really well so far and I’m sure it will in the future,” said Crummy, who worked for two years with Rugby New Zealand before taking up cricketing roles.
In addition, NZC Chief Executive David White said they are looking to slash 10 to 15 percent of its workforce to cope up with the challenges posed by the health crisis. In this way, the NCZ is going to save NZD 6 million in operation costs.
