East Anglia Council Constituency


Candidate Re-Elected for October 2021 - 2024


Brian Havill

I am standing again for election as one of the twelve voting members of Council as I continue to feel that I have the professional and volunteering experience to add value.

I have had a varied career since qualifying as a chartered accountant in the mid-1980s with a major accountancy firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers - including three years with PWC in Australia.

My first role out of accountancy practice was with HI-TEC Sports Shoes, first as Group Financial Controller and then as Chief Operating Officer of its fastest-growing subsidiary.

I moved away from accountancy to director level general management roles during four years with Pentland Group (owners of Speedo, Ellesse, Kickers and several other sports and fashion brands) and then, in 2000, became Finance Director of The England & Wales Cricket Board where I was for 15 years. I am now Deputy Chief Executive of Swim England.

I have a keen and active interest in sport and took up croquet at the age of 50 after a series of knee operations. In a voluntary capacity, I have served on the Councils of the Lawn Tennis Association and the Surrey County LTA. My roles included vice chair of the national LTA's Professional Tennis Performance Board. I have also been a non-executive member of the finance committee of the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

In 2017, I became a member of the then CA Council as the representative of the East Anglian Croquet Federation and in 2018 was asked onto the Management Committee. I chaired the Publications Committee. I now chair the AC Tournament Committee

Other voluntary roles that I currently do are:
