Andrew Cornish, Chief Executive Officer, Somerset Cricket Club
Andrew is a highly experienced and successful individual who has held important Chief Executive roles in leading businesses, most latterly as CEO of Liverpool Airport Holdings Ltd. His track record in delivering customer service, developing companies, and together with the delivery of major infrastructure projects make him, in our opinion, ideally suited to take on the challenges facing the Club in the years ahead. These include establishing floodlights at the Cooper Associates County Ground, delivering World Cup matches in 2019, navigating through the complexities of a new T20 tournament and, most importantly, ensuring that Somerset remain a superbly competitive Cricket Club.
As one of eighteen 1st Class County Clubs within the England and Wales Cricket Board structure, Andrew leads a team of professionals both on and off the field. Located at the iconic Cooper Associates County Ground, in the heart of Taunton, Andrew shares abiding commitment to do all that we can to bring trophies back to Taunton. Andrew played cricket to a high standard in his youth, and still to this day plays.
