Central Districts Cricket Association chief executive Hugh Henderson has resigned, effective from May 30.
After 15 years working directly in sport he has decided to take a different path and has bought into a marketing consultancy business.
Henderson was appointed chief executive on 2010, succeeding Blair Furlong who retired on May 31 that year . Henderson's previous job was commercial operations manager at the New Zealand Rugby Union. From 2001 he had three other roles at the NZRU.
"I have completed four enjoyable years in the role and believe that the association will benefit from a new leadership voice," Henderson said.
"2015 will see the development of a new strategic plan for the organisation and . . . I believe that it is optimal for an incoming CEO to be part of that plan's development," Henderson said.
"I have enjoyed my time involved in cricket and will always be proud to have worked for and continue to support Central Districts."
