Jacques Faul cricket
Born and raised in Klerksdorp, Faul ventured into cricket administration at a relatively young age. Earlier on, though, he had done quite well as a player while representing Northwest at both junior and senior levels for almost a decade. Jacque's success in the game, coupled with his influential personality, won him a seat on the Northwest Cricket Board before he even turned 30 years old.
Once when asked to comment on his seemingly smooth ride in cricket, Fauk said
"I desire to coach cricket all my life because I have the talent, education, and experience. Over time, I have learned to think out of the box, improvise and make things happen".
Most analysts credit his appointment as the Northwest Cricket Union CEO to his quick and witty approach to finding solutions. At 35 years old, Faul was considered the most suitable person to head the union, beating older and seemingly more experienced competitors.
As soon as Faul took over leadership at the Titans, the team turned into a formidable force trouncing every opponent on the domestic front. His leadership yielded several domestic trophies and prestigious national awards. In addition, this success turned the Titans into a generous source of qualified players for the Proteas. Also worth mentioning is the fact that Jacque's success at supersport-park saw an influx of sponsors hence tripling the Titan’s revenue.
As you would expect, Faul receives much praise for his exceptional management skills but he, in humility, rarely acknowledges the credits.
"When I was younger, I focused more on achieving results, but today I have realized that one should concentrate more on inspiration and building their human capital. Success comes more naturally when you motivate and inspire everyone under you. He explained noting that, that is his current way of doing things.
Jacques Faul recent news
Coronavirus, also known as COVID19, is wreaking havoc across the globe, and it has indefinitely disrupted many businesses. Leagues and related sporting bodies around the world are directly affected because little is happening as everyone does their best to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Reached for comment, Jacques Faul said that while the pandemic has been disruptive, Cricket South Africa is not severely affected financially. He noted that CSA is still stable and that they do not have plans to make salary cuts as has been the case in other sports bodies.
“At this stage, there is no indication that we have lost income. Everybody's financial position is different, and I can say that our players have enough money to run for at least two seasons.”
