Former West Indies captain, Daren Sammy has been appointed as a member of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Board of Directors as an independent non-member director on last Thursday 17th June 2021.
On his new appointment, Sammy said “It is an honour to be appointed as a CWI Director; this is another great opportunity for me to give my best to West Indies cricket in a new way, off the field. All my local, regional and international experiences have prepared me to make a significant ongoing impact in West Indies cricket. I am excited and thankful for the chance to serve and look forward to giving back to the sport and region that I love so much.”
Sammy is one of three appointments of Independent Directors approved by the CWI Board of Directors last Thursday to serve for the next two years. He joins Trinidadian Attorney Debra Coryat-Patton and Jamaican Surgeon and University Administrator Dr. Akshai Mansingh in being re-appointed for a second term.
CWI President Ricky Skerritt said Sammy brings valuable, modern-day insight into the CWI's governance.
"I am delighted to welcome Daren Sammy as an independent, non-member Director whose role will be to ensure that all the right questions are being asked while contributing to the shaping of new ideas and solutions. Daren's fairly recent experience as a two-time World Cup-winning captain will bring with him a much needed modern-day cricketer's perspective which should add valuable insights to Board discussions and decision-making. His appointment is testament to our commitment to strengthen CWI's governance, and to utilise expertise from across all stakeholder groups." Skerritt said.
