Cornish Pirates Name Josh Lewsey Acting Chief Executive

March 13, 2013

Former England rugby union international Josh Lewsey has been named acting chief executive by the Cornish Pirates.

The 36-year-old, who has a home in St Agnes and has also played for Wasps and Bristol, replaces the outgoing Rod Coward. 

Pirates owner Dicky Evans said: “Josh joins us on a consultative and part-time basis from April to September. He will bring his own unique brand of management skills to the Cornish Pirates.

“His CV is of course top notch, but of special significance has been his ability to switch his outstanding sporting ability into the area of business, deliberately differentiating himself from his peers in rugby by learning and adopting a broader set of skills in some of the world’s most challenging industries.

“Josh and I have been in touch for a couple of years on the future of rugby in Cornwall, the Pirates and the stadium and his advice to me behind the scenes has been invaluable.”
