CWI commits to governance reform
Cricket West Indies
Cricket West Indies (CWI) President, Ricky Skerrit says that key recommendations of the Wheby Report will be taken before the general membership of the board in March this year.
In 2019, Jamaican businessman Don Wheby chaired a Governance Task Force charged with reviewing and implementing reforms of CWI’s governance structure. The independent task force also included Sir Hillary Beckles, Deryck Murray, OK Melhafo and Charles Wilkin QC.
The task force consulted extensively and the 36-page report drew from a wide cross section of expertise from knowledgeable persons in the West Indies as well as in the global game.
He said various reforms have already been implemented including most of what was presented by financial consultants Parnell Kerr Foster (PKF) in their 2019 Business Situation Assessment and Financial Review of the organization.
