Greg Hechter joins Cricket Tasmania's High Performance team

Cricket Tasmania can proudly announce the hiring of Greg Hechter to Cricket Tasmania’s High Performance Team as the Head of Talent and Development.


Hechter has been an integral member of staff at the Cape Town Stormers in the United Rugby Championship and Super Rugby Championship for the past twenty years, holding several different roles within their organisation.


I am excited to be joining Cricket Tasmania and making the move from Cape Town to Hobart.


I aim to bring all of my experience in elite sport to Cricket Tasmania’s pathways programs as we look to identify the best cricket talent in Tasmania, whether this be on the field, or with our coaches and match officials,” stated Hechter.


Recently, Hechter has worked in the High Performance space at the Stormers, holding a wealth of knowledge, experience, and understanding of professional winning environments.


Upon leaving his previous role at the Stormers, the Director of Rugby at the Stormers discussed his ‘incredible instinct for identifying talent’', and Cricket Tasmania is delighted to have Hechter’s expertise in their own High Performance program.


As part of his role, Hechter will lead all talent programs within Cricket Tasmania with the overarching aim of producing high-potential players, coaches, and match officials.


The position itself is a newly developed role that will support the General Manager of High Performance, Salliann Beams, to achieve one of Cricket Tasmania’s strategic goals of creating and developing professional cricketers in Tasmania.


Beams is excited about Hechter joining the High Performance team.


Greg has had great success in South African Rugby and will bring a culture of success to our organisation.


The role will provide Greg with an opportunity to work with some of the youngest and brightest sporting talent in our state, as we look to develop the next Sam Nogajski, Amy Smith or Beau Webster,” explained Beams.


Pre-season training for the Tasmanian Tigers pathway programs begins in June.
