Leicestershire County Cricket Club names new CEO

Leicestershire County Cricket Club has announced Sean Jarvis as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Jarvis, a current Board Director who was born and raised in Leicester and has a passion for sport and business, will take up his new position on 24 June 2020.

A commercial and community specialist within sport, Jarvis has 25 years of experience at an executive level within professional sport clubs, including in the Premier League with Huddersfield Town, the Football League with Oldham Athletic, and the launch of Super League.

Jarvis has delivered solid results in the last 14 years at the Terriers, a period which saw the club rise from League One to the top tier of English football. He brokered multi-million pound commercial deals working with many national and international brands, and has led a commercial team to a record eight Football League Awards.

He has also been a Trustee of the Huddersfield Town Foundation, being instrumental in transforming the charity from concept to creation to a Foundation now employing 60 staff. The Foundation has raised £2m and served more than one million free breakfasts to children through various social and community activities.

Jarvis has been a key commercial strategist on Leicestershire CCC’s Board of Directors in the last 12 months in his role as a Nominated Director.

Jarvis said: “The County is in my DNA and I am honoured to be becoming the Chief Executive Officer of Leicestershire County Cricket Club. I look forward to working with the new Board and all of the staff on developing a new and exciting chapter for our cricket club.

“The challenge ahead is not going to be easy but with hard work, commitment and the continued support of our stakeholders, Members, supporters and local businesses, I am sure that our future will be much brighter.”

Leicestershire CCC Chairman Mehmooda Duke MBE DL said: “We are delighted to welcome Sean to the club as our new Chief Executive Officer.

“Sean has a wide skillset which he has evidenced as a Board Director over the last 12 months; he comes with a wealth of experience in sport which I am sure will help drive Leicestershire County Cricket Club to a promising future. Sean will be an asset to us and we look forward to him starting in June.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
