Dexter said he was honoured with the appointment: "I am aware that following Robin Marlar's highly successful presidency, it is a hard act to follow. But if a lasting love affair with Sussex counts for anything I will at least have a sound platform to build on. Having the opportunity to play some small part in the exciting coming events is a privilege and a pleasure."
Gus Mackay, the chief executive, added: "Robin has been a great President of the club and we thank him for his contribution. We are thrilled that Ted has accepted the commission and that his appointment was ratified by Members at our AGM. He is a legend of Sussex cricket and we look forward to having him actively involved once again."
Dexter played 137 matches for Sussex and scored 8827 runs at 41 while also bagging 218 wickets at 26.
