Melbourne: May 2, 2014
Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Wally Edwards announced that David Peever has been elected its deputy chairman. Peever, 56, was appointed as an independent CA director in October 2012 as part of broad governance changes to Australian cricket. He currently sits on the CA Remuneration Committee. Speaking at CA’s board meeting, Edwards said the appointment was a tremendous boost for Australian cricket.

“David Peever is a great leader and will bring outstanding business acumen to the role combined with a deep passion for the game,” Edwards said. Over the next year-and-a-half I will work closely with David at a national and international level to ensure a smooth handover of the chairman’s role when my tenure finishes in October 2015.”

Peever is a non-executive director of the Melbourne Business School, a director of the Business Council of Australia, a member of the Prime Minister’s Indigenous Advisory Council and the Department of Defence Gender Equality Advisory Board.

He said he had great pride in taking on the role.  “It’s a key time for Australian cricket. A lot of significant change has occurred for the better on and off the field. I’m looking forward to working with the chairman, the board and the executive team to continue that process,” Peever said.

Peever graduated from James Cook University with an economics degree and later completed a Masters of Science in Mineral Economics from Macquarie University. He has served on the executive committee of the Queensland Cricket Association.
