Northamptonshire are seeking a new chief executive following the surprise resignation of Mark Tagg.
The former Worcestershire director of finance’s resignation has been accepted by Northamptonshire chairman Martin Lawrence and he will depart Wantage Road at the end of the month after eight years at the helm.
‘’I feel I have achieved what I came here to do and after eight years the time has come for me to move on, to explore new opportunities, and allow a new chief executive to continue to drive the club forward,” Tagg said.
“I have made many friends and professional contacts, all of whom I value greatly. I would like thank my colleagues, players, members, board members, club president, patrons and numerous others for the enjoyable opportunity I had working with them during my time here at Northamptonshire.”
During his time in charge Tagg oversaw ground improvements at Wantage Road including the erection of floodlights although that was not without controversy as some of the pylons were positioned in the wrong place by contractors.
He has continued to live near Cheltenham and has made a lengthy daily commute to and from Northampton.
“In the rapidly changing world of professional sport it is vital for the club to continue to move forward and develop,” Lawrence said.
“Thanks to the good work done over the last eight years we have many opportunities both on and off the field and the new chief executive will be appointed in the next few months to develop these’’.
