The Gauteng Cricket Board’s 40th Annual General Meeting in the Long Room at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium saw only one change to the Board of Directors.
Long-serving member Faizel Sallie stepped down from the Board and was replaced by Brian van Rooyen after a vote by constituents in line with the Memorandum of Incorporation.
GCB President, Jack Madiseng, thanked Sallie for the service that he has rendered to the GCB and welcomed Van Rooyen to the Board. “Brian has been involved in club cricket for many years and I am confident that he will be an incredible addition to the leadership of the Company as we head into an exciting period of growth and development for the GCB. With the introduction of the T20 Global League as well as major development projects at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium, our responsibility to ensure that the GCB operates in the interest of sustainability and broadening the participation of cricket in all areas, is greater than ever before.”
The evening included a journey through the year in review and saw the presentation of the organisation’s first ever fully integrated report, in-line with international best-practices. “Internationally integrated reporting is enhancing the way organizations think, plan and report the story of their business and assists in communicating a clear, concise, integrated story that explains how all of their resources are creating value. The GCB report aims to convey the year in review in a manner that is aligned to the strategy and reflected in the financials,” Madiseng said.
“I would like to thank our members, the clubs, as well as the Board, committee members, volunteers and players for the role that they play in keeping the office and the Board in line with our mandate. My belief that we can achieve greatness is stronger than ever. I would like to make special mention of the incredible staff that the GCB has as we are fortunate to have this wealth of knowledge and level of dedication,” Madiseng concluded.
The GCB Board of Directors is as follows:
Jack Madiseng (President), Anne Vilas (Vice-President), Mohammed Majam (Vice-President), Mike Sacher (Treasurer), Brian van Rooyen, Koketso Muller and Ntsongo Sibiya
