Buchanan, who took up the role at NZC in May 2011, is disappointed to be leaving NZC at this time as he has enjoyed his work there. However due to family circumstances, he has decided to return to Australia.
Buchanan's return to Australia will give him the opportunity to explore other roles and consultancies with his business Buchanan Success Coaching.
He is grateful to NZC for giving him a chance to be its Director of Cricket, and to work with many outstanding individuals within the organisation.
NZC respects John’s decision to return home and we wish him well for his future endeavours.
