Simon Storey

Chief Executive Officer

Simon Storey joined Kent Cricket as Chief Executive Officer in November 2018 after six years as CEO at Derbyshire County Cricket Club. He relocated to Kent with his family, having strong connections with East Kent, where his mother’s family have farmed for over 150 years.

Before entering the world of sports administration in 2012, he enjoyed a successful career in sales, marketing and senior management at Johnson & Johnson, both in the UK and overseas.

He has served on the ECB Executive Committee as a representative of Non-Test Grounds, and led Derby’s successful bid to be an ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup host city in 2017.

Under his stewardship, Kent Cricket has seen success on and off the playing field including the recent Men’s Vitality Blast success in 2021.

A believer that sport can be a powerful force for good in the community, Simon has championed the development of key partnerships across the County including Visit Kent, Canterbury & Beckenham BIDs, Kent County Council, Canterbury City Council and London Borough of Bromley.
