Meet Latest Board Members - Charlotte Edwards and Geoff Ellis

Meet Latest Board Members - Charlotte Edwards and Geoff Ellis

This month on the Pod we are thrilled to be joined by our two latest board members – Geoff Ellis and Charlotte Edwards as they share their thoughts on the future of NCCA, and what they will bring to the organisation.

 

Geoff Ellis joins us with an impressive background in business as he tells us about his time as CFO at Walt Disney and the value he will bring to the future development of the NCCA. “Being an independent pair of eyes means that I can bring commercial perspective with a solid economic base”. “I like to describe myself as someone who comes from Mars to bring another point of view”. 

 

Geoff explains what attracted him to work with the NCCA, (aside his love of cricket) and the 3 areas that he is most excited to get stuck into.

 

An impressive operator in the board room, but also very importantly a long history with the game on and off the pitch.

Our second guest on the pod this month is Former England Women’s Captain - Charlotte ‘Lottie’ Edwards CBE. The youngest women ever to represent her country in 1996, aged 16.  We hear what it was like to pursue a professional career in cricket as a female and how much the game has evolved“I feel I have a responsibility to keep promoting and supporting women’s cricket, helping girls to find opportunities to play.”

 

We hear about Lottie’s work with the Southern Vipers and the Southern Brave, as well as the new regional structure and what this will look like moving forward. 

 

To round up, Lottie shares her thoughts on the NCCA, The Hundred and her passion to continue to push the game forward - “I believe everyone should have the opportunity to play cricket, male or female.”
