Jacques Faul’s tenure as CEO of the Titans and the Northerns Cricket Union has been extended until 30 April 2021.
Faul has been at the helm during one of the most dominant periods of the franchise’s existence, as the Titans won the Momentum One-Day Cup, the Sunfoil Series and the Ram Slam T20 Challenge in the past two seasons, having shared the spoils in the domestic 50-over showpiece in 2013-14. Added to this the Northerns Cricket Union’s semi-professional team won the inaugural CSA Africa T20 competition this past season as well.
Faul and the board also engineered a sensational transformation in the off-the-field exploits of the Northerns Cricket Union (NCU), as the union won the prestigious CSA Incentive Scorecard in 2015 and 2016, while SuperSport Park was named the best cricket stadium in South Africa in an independent review ordered by CSA.
The NCU also announced a R16.2-million commercial turnaround over a period of two-and-a-half years during Faul’s term.
During his short, successful stint as acting chief executive officer of Cricket South Africa (CSA), the Board of CSA announced a five-year deal with Momentum as the name sponsor of the South African One-Day International team.
‘We are delighted to be able to have secured Jacques’s services for a further five years. The performances both on and off the field speak for themselves, and Jacques should take full credit for this,’ said John Wright, the NCU president.
‘At this level, you require a passionate professional who is committed to transformation, driven in pursuit of domestic trophies while staying true to the vision of producing national players for South Africa and unearthing new sensations in every suburb and township of the greater Northerns area,’ Wright added.
‘The team ethos at the franchise has contributed largely to our proud domestic record the past three years and my vision is to continue this while retaining the same business and brand-building philosophy that underpinned our success the past three years,’ Faul said.
