Cricket Hong Kong (CHK) have announced that their CEO Tim Cutler will leave his post at the end of April. Cutler was appointed as CHK’s first ever CEO in May 2015 and in his two years at the helm, he has taken Hong Kong Cricket to new heights. A career in Marine Insurance brought Cutler to Hong Kong in 2013. Under Cutler’s watch, Hong Kong is now among the top 13 ODI sides. Cutler also oversaw two editions of the Hong Kong T20 Blitz, which featured prominent international players like Michael Clarke, Misbah-ul-Haq, Ian Bell, Chris Jordan, Jesse Ryder and Marlon Samuels to name a few.

CHK President Rodney Miles said, “Cricket in Hong Kong has never seen so much positive change as it has during the past five years. Tim has made a valuable contribution to the sport during his tenure, in terms of authoring our new long term strategy, championing our brand re-fresh, and being the driving force behind our increased media presence and enhanced international reputation,” according to a CHK media release.
“Furthermore, under Tim’s leadership the Hong Kong Twenty20 Blitz was devised and launched, which in its second year had almost 12 million views online – a great achievement and one we are committed to building on going forward,” Miles added. “We will be sad to lose Tim but we appreciate the passion he has brought to the role and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” concluded Miles.

Cutler said that it was an honour to lead CHK and felt that it was the right time to bow out. He said,“I have been hugely honoured to lead Cricket Hong Kong. As the sport’s first CEO here it has been a rewarding challenge to champion so many transformational initiatives, but I feel the time is right to go out on a high and pursue new projects. I look forward to seeing the sport here continue to build, growing cricket in Hong Kong and the region.”
