Lorgat's contract extended until 2019
The extension was recommended by a Board panel of directors and was announced by the CSA President.
The extension was recommended by a Board panel of directors and was announced by CSA President, Chris Nenzani, at the conclusion of today's CSA Board meeting held in Johannesburg.
The Board noted with delight the exceptional progress made by CSA since Lorgat's appointment in 2013.
Nenzani says the Board did not hesitate in its decision.
"He took over at a time of great uncertainty and under very difficult circumstances, but his experience and astute leadership has stabilized our cricket and set us on the path of achieving our goal to be the best run sports federation on the continent."
He says they have received 'excellent' feedback from stakeholders since Haroon's appointment.
"The culture in our environment has turned into a very positive one and we are poised to grow even stronger."
Lorgat was appreciative of the confidence of the Board.
"I am proud to serve my country and I am also very grateful to the CSA Board who have shown confidence in my ability to turn things around and lead CSA."
Also discussed at the meeting was the nomination and appointment of Independent and Non-Independent directors.
At the CSA AGM on 12 September, two Independent and two Non-Independent positions on the board will be coming up for re-election.
The Directors agreed amongst themselves that Norman Arendse (SC), Adv Vusi Pikoli, Fa-eez Jaffer and Rihan Richards will offer themselves for re-election.
The remaining eight Directors will continue to serve on the CSA Board until the next AGM when their term of office will expire.
