Whycliffe "Dave" Cameron (born 8 April 1971) is the former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Inc. He was elected the 18th president of the WICB in March 2013.[1]

Career[edit]

He has served as the vice president of the St. Ann Parish Association, Team Manager and President of Kensington Cricket Club. He was also Treasurer for the Jamaica Cricket Association.[citation needed]

Cameron attended Clan Carthy Primary School in Kingston, Jamaica and has a first class honours BSc in Hotel Management from the University of the West Indies.[2]

President of the West Indies Cricket Board[edit]

A WICB director between 2002 and 2019, Cameron served as vice-president during Julian Hunte's tenure as president, 2007-13. In the 2013 election Cameron beat the incumbent Hunte 7-5. His running mate, Emmanuel Nanthan of Dominica, became the new vice-president, beating Barbados Cricket Association president Joel Garner. Cameron, 42, was nominated by the Jamaica Cricket Association and seconded by the Windward Cricket Board.[1]

His term has been marked by continuing controversy. He deliberately keeps a business-like and distant relationship with players, but with an open door. He played against Chris Gayle in club cricket.[3]
