Greenberg was officially unveiled on Monday, replacing Alastair Nicholson, who confirmed his departure in October.
It’s the first official move into cricket for Greenberg, who played first grade for Randwick Petersham in Sydney before climbing the NRL’s ranks.
He was Canterbury’s CEO from 2008-13, before becoming the NRL’s head of football in 2013 and chief executive in 2016.
However he fell on his sword as NRL boss during the game’s COVID-19 shutdown, amid battles with clubs and free-to-air broadcaster the Nine Network.
The 50-year-old had been mooted as a possible option for the Cricket Australia top job, but Nick Hockley is now looking increasingly likely to maintain that.
“I have a long history with cricket, it’s the game I first fell in love with,” Greenberg said.
“(I) am looking forward to the opportunity to work closely on their behalf in partnership with Cricket Australia and the state associations for the good of the game.”Jump to next article
