Gould secures key role at Oval

Surrey County Cricket Club, which plays its home games at the Kia Oval in London, has appointed Richard Gould as its new chief executive with effect from 1 April 2011. Gould has operated as Somerset chief executive for the past six years, and before that spent several years as commercial director of Bristol City FC.

Richard Thompson, Surrey CCC chairman, said: “Richard is a born leader. His term and contribution at Somerset speaks for itself. His commitment to cricket at all levels and strong commercial pedigree highlighted Richard as a standout candidate. I look forward to working with him and feel confident his contribution will be significant in all aspects of Surrey Cricket in the years to come.

Richard Gould said that he was delighted to be joining Surrey CCC: “Surrey CCC offers one of the biggest challenges in UK sport and I am relishing the opportunity of helping to lead the club going forward. Surrey CCC has enormous levels of support throughout London and the country, and has done a great job over recent years transforming the Kia Oval into one of the most iconic grounds in world cricket.
Richard Gould will succeed Paul Sheldon, chief executive since 1995, who stands down at the end of March.
