Barbados-born former England batter Roland Butcher has been appointed as a new selector for the West Indies Men’s Senior and Youth Teams.
The 69-year-old played county cricket for 15 years at Middlesex, having moved to the UK aged 14.
Butcher played three Tests and a trio of ODIs for England and became their first black cricketer.
Since calling time on a playing career that included scoring 12,021 first-class runs with 17 centuries and 65 fifties, he has held coaching roles with Tasmania and Bermuda.
"It is a great honor and a privilege to be given the opportunity to serve West Indies Cricket," said Butcher.
"I'm eager to get started to work alongside the other members of the selection panels as we look to ensure the growth and improvement in West Indies cricket at all levels."
He joins Desmond Haynes on the men's senior panel and Robert Haynes on the youth panel.
The appointment follows a period of upheaval around West Indies men's cricket. Brian Lara and Mickey Arthur were involved in a review following a disappointing T20 World Cup campaign which saw Phil Simmons leave his role as head coach.
Earlier this week, Andre Coley was installed on an interim basis as Simmons' successor for the upcoming Zimbabwe and South Africa tours.
