Derek Michael Brewer (born 1958) is the Secretary and CEO of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). Following Keith Bradshaw's unexpected resignation, he was appointed as his successor at the end of 2011.
After Leighton Park School, Brewer graduated from Aston University with a (BSc) degree in business administration while playing cricket for the Warwickshire 2nd XI as a bowler. He then forged a career in banking and finance, before serving as Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire CCC from 2005 until 2012.
As the MCC Secretary and Chief Executive since May 2012, Brewer's first task was high profile in overseeing London2012's hosting archery competitions at Lord's Cricket Ground, and then, within two weeks, to return Lord's as a world-class cricket venue in advance of 2012's last Test match between the world's top two cricketing nations: England and South Africa. Annually Lord's hosts the British one-day cricket final. In addition, he has had to deal with controversy and internal disputes over a redevelopment plan, begun before his arrival, that included construction of residential flats on some of the MCC site.
