Cricketer Michael Vaughan has joined Whisper as a member of its advisory board.
Vaughan captained the England men’s cricket team 51 times between 2003 and 2008, leading them to a record 26 victories and a memorable Ashes triumph in 2005.
In his role, Vaughan will support Whisper across its growing cricket portfolio, as well as with additional broadcast and branded projects, with a focus on new business.

Since retiring in 2009, Vaughan has become a cricket broadcaster, working with BBC Sport, Test Match Special, Channel 5, Sky, BT Sport and Fox Sports, as well as presenting his own show on BBC 5 Live. He is also a columnist for The Daily Telegraph and has written three books.

Speaking about the appointment, Whisper’s CEO Sunil Patel said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Michael to the advisory board. He is extremely well connected in sport and business and brings a wealth of valuable cricket, broadcast and business experience. His appointment will be extremely beneficial to our stakeholders and the whole team.”

Vaughan added: “Whisper has made waves in sports broadcasting and gained an enviable reputation within the industry. There’s a real creative stamp on all their content and a strong team ethos, which I’m excited to be part of. I hope I can help build opportunities in the cricket world and beyond as we collectively look to define the next chapter of Whisper’s growth.”

Whisper currently produces Formula One, International Cricket, NFL, Women’s Super League, SailGP, The Paralympics and W Series, amongst others, and will be announcing new cricket contracts shortly.
