UK Gambling Commission Appoints New CEO

In the midst of major regulatory change for the UK industry, the UK Gambling Commission has introduced a new CEO: Neil McArthur. McArthur, the acting interim since February 2018, has been a major part of the ramping up of moves in the industry. Stepping in for Sarah Harrison MBE, McArthur has impressed enough to land himself a coveted role trying to reshape the industry.

On his new appointment, McArthur said that: “I’m looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead to make gambling fairer and safer. I am really proud of the Commission’s achievements over the last 12 years, but there is a lot more to do.”

With the aim of trying to create a safer industry for all, this latest move shows just how serious the industry is about enacting mass change in the UK online casino gaming industry. A lawyer by trade, he’s an expert in legal matters and could play a key role in acting as a bridge between regulators and parties who are protesting the latest changes.

Bill Moyes, the GC Chair, said that: “Neil’s appointment is great news for the Commission. He brings to the role a thorough understanding of gambling issues and regulation, along with a proven commitment to making gambling fairer and safer.”

Amid a period of immense uncertainty in the industry, this latest advancement in finding a new UKGC CEO is very important. With much work to be done to find consensus, this could be absolutely vital for the long-term safety and strong working relationship within the gambling industry.
