The boy from the backstreets of Birmingham has developed into a highly personable, articulate and effective leader since becoming the first British-born Muslim to play county cricket. Wasim Khan joined the Cricket Foundation in 2005, became its CEO in 2009 before taking-up the same role with Leicestershire at the start of 2015. He was previously a first-class player with Warwickshire, Sussex and Derbyshire. He developed the Chance to Shine scheme into a £50m-a-year operation and has developed strong relationships in government (he sits on the Equality & Human Rights Commission Sports Group and The Prince's Trust Cricket Group) and business along the way. It is generally regarded as the best scheme of its type in the world and the model by which all others should be judged. Young, media savvy and well-respected as an ambassador for the game and man manager, Wasim possesses an enviable package of skills. He was awarded an MBE in 2013.
