Charles Cook, a corporate, media and sports lawyer from Bristol firm Charles Cook & Co has been appointed to the Executive Board at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.
Cook is the managing partner of boutique corporate, property and private client firm Cook & Co Solicitors, sits on the board of several high-profile businesses in Bristol and has numerous connections in the sports sector.
Founded in 1870, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club is currently undergoing an impressive £6.0m redevelopment of its ground and pavilion in Bristol which will be operational later this year.
“This is a very exciting time for the club.” Commented Cook. “The development of the ground will ensure that first class cricket, with impressive facilities, will keep being delivered to the people of Bristol and Gloucestershire.”
Former player David Graveney has also been appointed to the Board.
Gloucestershire chairman Rex Body said: “I was very pleased when both David and Charles agreed to join the executive board.
“As co-optees, they will bring valuable experience and expertise in their respective fields.
“David will fill the vacancy created by Jack Russell – who is standing down because of his current business commitments, while Charles fills a long-standing gap in our board expertise.
“Both are joining at a very exhilarating time as we look forward to further successful progress for this great club.”
