New Zealand Cricket’s deputy CEO Anthony Crummy has stepped down from his put up because the board slashed 15 per cent of its employees as a part of austerity measures to cope with the impression of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week, NZC chief govt David White had mentioned it’s seeking to shed round 10 to 15 % of its employees and save NZD 6 million in operation prices because it copes with the “challenges” posed by the well being disaster.
However, Crummy, who was related to New Zealand Cricket for 5 years, mentioned he was not requested to go away and his departure at this juncture was 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,” Crummy was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz.
“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, who seemed in line to succeed White because the NZC chief, mentioned the organisation is properly positioned to cope with the monetary impression of this unprecedented disaster.
“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,” mentioned Crummy, who labored for 2 years with Rugby New Zealand earlier than taking on cricketing roles.
