Bowden, who will take up the post early in the season, will bring a wealth of experience from both the business and sporting worlds.

During his time at Portman Road he successfully restructured the finances of the Championship side, spearheading commercial activities whilst managing the playing budget.

Bowden previously spent over 18 years in various senior management roles at Saatchi & Saatchi and is delighted to be now starting in his new position at Essex Cricket.

He told www.essexcricket.org.uk, “I’m really looking forward to joining the team at Essex and working with them to create the success that Essex Cricket deserves.”

Nigel Hilliard, Chairman of Essex Cricket, said: “Derek has a wealth of experience in the commercial and sporting world, which will be of great benefit to the club at a time when we are embarking on a major redevelopment of The Essex County Ground. Once completed the stadium will be a fitting centrepiece to the new City of Chelmsford.”

Former chief executive David East left his role at the end of 2012 after 12 years in the post.
