Guy Lavender took over as the sixteenth Chief Executive & Secretary of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) on 1st October 2017.
Lavender joined MCC from Somerset, where he became Chief Executive in 2011. During his time at Taunton, he helped establish them as one of the best run clubs in county cricket. Their consistently sold-out attendances for T20 cricket, as well as a thriving membership and successful ground redevelopment, culminated in Taunton hosting a T20 international between England and South Africa in 2017.
