Noel Lynch is set to move his talents from the track and field arena to the boardroom.
According to reliable sources, Lynch, a former Minister of Tourism is highly tipped to become the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA).
Lynch, the current vice-president of the Athletics Association of Barbados (AAB) and a top sprinter in his heyday, will replace veteran insurance executive David Deane, who is the current Acting CEO of the BCA.
He served as Minister of Tourism and International Transport from 2000 to 2008. Lynch also served as the Executive Vice President of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association; Chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization; Past President of the Caribbean Association of Hotel Association Executives; and Director of the Caribbean Hotel Association.
Deane had taken over from former CEO Jefferson Miller, who had been fired by the BCA in October 2014 after Barbados TODAY broke the story that Miller had been convicted in a Miami Dade County Court on a charge of grand theft to the second degree, for which he was sentenced 12 years probation.
