Statement of new WICB President Whycliffe ‘Dave’ Cameron

I am most humbled, happy and feel very blessed to be elected to lead this most august body that is the West Indies Cricket Board.

It was a long process and I travelled the length and breadth of the Caribbean, from Kingston, Jamaica to Georgetown, Guyana to be able to address the concerns of our stakeholders.

I thank the shareholders for having placed their confidence in me and Vice President His Excellency Ambassador Emmanuel Nanthan and I congratulate him on his election to office. I wish to thank Dr. Julian Hunte for his yeoman service to West Indies Cricket and his leadership of the Board for the past six years.

I look forward to serving the shareholders and all stakeholders in this new capacity to the best of my ability and hope that I live up to the expectation of those who have placed their trust and confidence in me and all the stakeholders of West Indies Cricket.

As we take over the reins of the WICB, we assume responsibility with very lofty goals in our minds and the understanding of the reason we are here and what everybody in the region is looking forward to us being able to accomplish.

In my presentations to the territorial boards, I spoke about building on our immense talent, increasing the revenues in the sport and, above all, uniting the region through the game of cricket.

West Indies cricket stirs up great passion in the region – from the man in the street to the Prime Ministers – and we take on this huge responsibility of rebuilding West Indies Cricket.

We must find creative way of dealing with the challenges that will confront us from time to time.

Most critically I look forward to the support of the international, regional and local players, the territorial boards, the Board of Directors, the management and staff, sponsors, the media and the public as we join hands in continuing the work to transform West Indies Cricket and move it forward.
