Born Jacques Faul is the current Chief Executive of Titans cricket. He took over from the acting appointee, Aniel Soma. This could be considered a step down in some quarters for Jacques, who was the acting CEO of Cricket South Africa for one year.
“I learned a lot while I was with CSA, it was difficult, but we achieved what we set out to do, which was keeping the operations going and getting the sponsors back.
“It has also given me a more balanced view of cricket administration, has always been on the affiliate’s side of the fence before then.
“I wanted to stay in cricket and I want to make the Titans the best franchise in the world. It’s a fantastic organisation and I’m very privileged,” Faul said.
“I want to take the organisation to a new level, but you can only react in four ways strategically when you move into a venture, and this applies from a pub to an accounting firm. You can stop, start, continue or change things.
“The Titans is a great organisation, so I’ll be continuing a lot of things. But my role demands that I stop, start and change certain things. Issues such as stadia and financial stability are always dynamic,” said he.
