Responsible gambling body chairman steps down

News on 11 Dec 2017

The chair of independent responsible gambling body Senet, Wanda Goldwag, has stepped down after three years and is moving to the UK health sector, the organisation advised Monday.

Goldwag was the first chair appointed by Senet in 2014 when the group was founded to improve industry-wide social responsibility standards in gambling advertising and operational practices.

Announcing her departure, Goldwag said:

“It has been an honour working with Senet in raising awareness of the risks associated with excessive and problem gambling. I believe the lead players in the sector have a unique responsibility as well as a unique ability to deliver these messages.

“The Senet Group has played a central role in crafting these messages and in securing the commitments made to deliver them and to limit various forms of advertising.”

The Senet board has appointed Gillian Wilmot, a non-executive director, to the position of Interim Chair while the board reviews its future plans with regards to leadership.
