Helen Macindoe has been appointed Cricket PNG's first woman chairperson.
She was confirmed in the role at the organisation's Annual General Meeting in Port Moresby on Tuesday and is the only woman chair among the top sixteen cricket nations.
The owner and Managing Director of Pure Water said she is thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the new board.
"Cricket PNG has a long history of being overseen by boards made up of highly competent and professional people," she said.
"That history and the commitment of those involved to the highest levels of good governance have contributed to crickets growth in PNG and also to the organisation's strong standing amongst the international cricket community.
"I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to carry on the work of previous Boards and look forward to helping Cricket PNG achieve its aim of being PNG's favourite family sport."
Macindoe will lead a new Cricket PNG Board which compromises of Rio Fiocco (deputy chair), Michael Harrison (secretary), Paul Kiruwi (treasurer), Johnson Kalo (women's cricket director), Justin McGann (infrastructure & development director) and Dean Ani (affiliated associations representative).
