Professional Cricketers’ Association Non-Executive Chairman Matthew Wheeler is to temporarily take on more PCA business in the absence of CEO David Leatherdale.
A PCA member, Wheeler has been on the PCA board as a Non-Executive since 2009 and was appointed Non-Executive Chairman in 2014. He will be taking on many of the roles and responsibilities of the CEO on an interim basis.
Following professional advice, Leatherdale is taking a break from his role as Chief Executive at the PCA.
Leatherdale recently developed an acute stress reaction as a result of a number of personal life events coinciding with a period of intense work commitments.
This will enable him to rest, focus on supporting his family and allow a smooth and robust return to his full duties at the appropriate time.
“In David’s absence I will be spending more time on PCA matters and will be at the Kia Oval office on a regular basis over the coming weeks."
Worcestershire batsman and PCA Chairman Daryl Mitchell will continue with his position on the ECB cricket committee on behalf of the membership by representing players’ views.
PCA Non-Executive Chairman, Wheeler, said:
“In David’s absence I will be spending more time on PCA matters and will be at the Kia Oval office on a regular basis over the coming weeks.
“We all wish him a speedy return to full health and we ask for you to respect his privacy at this time.
“The PCA is extremely fortunate to have an excellent group of staff who will continue to deliver services to members with the association operating as usual.”
