Cape Town - Dolphins CEO Pete de Wet enjoys his last day in office today at Kingsmead before jetting to Napier, New Zealand, to take the CEO post at Central Districts Cricket.

He flies with his family on Wednesday and is in his new surroundings from 4 August. De Wet was a surprise and a somewhat unknown quantity when he was appointed Dolphins Cricket CEO 18 months ago on a five-year contract.

With a strong marketing background, he had some definite ideas and gameplans to move forward with. In his short time, he will be remembered for giving Kingsmead a new facelift outside and inside, plus changing the Dolphins logo and securing a co-sponsor on a three-year deal, while not forgetting his part in bagging Kevin Pietersen for last season and the coming season’s Ram Slam T20 competition.
