President of the West Indies Cricket Board edit

A WICB director between 2002 and 2019, Cameron served as vice-president during Julian Hunte's tenure as president, 2007-13. In the 2013 election Cameron beat the incumbent Hunte 7-5. His running mate, Emmanuel Nanthan of Dominica, became the new vice-president, beating Barbados Cricket Association president Joel Garner. Cameron, 42, was nominated by the Jamaica Cricket Association and seconded by the Windward Cricket Board.[1]

His term has been marked by continuing controversy. He deliberately keeps a business-like and distant relationship with players, but with an open door. He played against Chris Gayle in club cricket.[3]
