Richard Tennant has succeeded Peter Wright as Nottinghamshire chairman.
Wright announced he was relinquishing the role, which he held for eight years, at the club’s recent Annual General Meeting.
Tennant, having joined the general committee in 2000, was vice-chairman during Wright’s reign that saw the club make giant strides on and off the field.
Notts won two trophies during that time, the 2010 County Championship and 2013 Yorkshire Bank 40, while the Trent Bridge Community Trust was launched, the New Stand was built and the Radcliffe Road scoreboard was installed.
“It is, of course, a great privilege to be elected chairman of a club I have supported throughout my life,” Tennant said.
“Having been vice chairman to Peter for eight years, I am very conscious of the hard work he has put in and how well he has represented the interests of the club over the years.
“Under his watch the club has achieved so much and I will do my best to build on that success with the support of my colleagues on the committee, and a strong executive led by an excellent CEO in Lisa Pursehouse.
“The speed of change within cricket shows no sign of relenting and, while we will no doubt continue to be presented with significant challenges, we have a clear vision for the future.
“I am relishing leading the next chapter and determined to ensure that we remain a successful county club and international venue long into the future.”
