Leon commented on his appointment: “It will be a great privilege to chair the Bradman Foundation, which honours the legacy of Sir Donald Bradman and his vision that cricket continues to flourish and spread its wings and be a global force for good”.
“By bringing together people of different natures, cultures, and social backgrounds, cricket has the power to bridge an increasingly divided world”.
“Now more than ever, the Foundation has an important role to play in delivering on that mission”.
Leon has a strong personal interest in all forms of the game of cricket. In addition to his role as a director of the Bradman Foundation, his professional involvement with the sport includes his role as an Appeals Conduct Commissioner of Cricket Australia’s code of behaviour.
