Jon Lewis' measured approach as both a player and a coach has served Durham extremely well for nearly 20 years.
After taking over on a temporary basis in June 2013 and helping Durham secure the County Championship title, Lewis was installed permanently as Durham Head Coach in December of that year.
His first full season in charge got off to a challenging start as the team had to wait until mid-June for a first championship victory. But the Isleworth-born coach eventually led Durham to a respectable fifth place finish and a first one-day trophy since 2007.
And despite a challenging summer last time out, with injuries hitting most areas of the squad, Lewis led the side to an improved fourth-placed finish in 2015.
A former opening batsman who first moved from Essex to Chester-le-Street in 1997, Lewis would later replace Nick Speak as captain and was handed a benefit year thanks to some consistent performances at the top of the order. His career came to a close after over 450 professional appearances, including a top score of 210* against Oxford University on his Durham debut.
Upon his release, Lewis turned to coaching and looked after the second team for a number of years before his promotion.
