UK gambling oversight body The Senet Group have announced that its current chairperson, Wanda Goldwag will step down at the end of the year.
At the end of her three-year term of office, Goldwag will assume a non-executive director role with the Royal Free Group.
The Senet Group’s board of directors have asked Gillian Wilmot, a current non-executive director of the group to act as interim chairperson while it considers its future plans.
In a statement confirming the departure, the Senet Group paid tribute to the outgoing Goldwag, saying:
“Wanda has all our thanks for her work with the Senet Group. To-day more than 80 % of players and the public at large recognise the When the Fun Stops campaign to promote responsible gambling and surveys suggest it has helped millions to change their gambling habits on occasion or to intervene with a friend over their actions. But, more needs to be done to make gambling services safer and fairer and to build public trust. That message has been received loud and clear.”
