Todd Greenberg, former chief executive of Australia’s National Rugby League (NRL), has been confirmed as the new chief executive of the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) following a board meeting on Monday (25 January). 

Greenberg, whose name had been suggested as a potential successor for Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts, will replace outgoing chief executive Alastair Nicholson. 

“I would like to thank the ACA board and the players for the opportunity to advocate for them. I have a long history with cricket – it’s the game I first fell in love with – and am looking forward to the opportunity to work closely on their behalf in partnership with Cricket Australia and the state associations for the good of the game,” Greenberg said. 

Greenberg had been chief executive of the NRL since March 2016 and prior to that was the league’s head of football since 2013. He also previously served as chief executive of NRL team the Canterbury Bulldogs. 

He resigned from the NRL in April last year amid the NRL’s handling of its response to the Covid-19 pandemic. He had also been criticised over the size of his salary during pay talks with the Rugby League Players’ Association, before accepting the same cut as was given to the players while the league was shut down. 

Commenting on the appointment Cricket Australia’s Interim chief executive Nick Hockley said: “The role of CEO at the Australian Cricketers’ Association is an incredibly important one, and on behalf of Cricket Australia, I’d like to congratulate Todd Greenberg on his appointment. Todd’s experience in administering the National Rugby League will bring valuable insights that will undoubtedly benefit cricket.”
