Tuesday, June 14, 2011 : Neil Goulden to succeed Andrew Tottenham as chair of The Great Foundation
 
Neil Goulden, former chief exec of the online and land gambling group Gala Coral, has been elected chairman of the GREat Foundation, a charity that promotes responsible gambling.
 
The Board of Trustees announced Goulden's appointment at its meeting this week, along with new trustees Andrew Love – deputy chairman of the Ritz Hotel and executive chairman of The Ritz Club; Ken Turner – chief executive of Sceptre Leisure plc; and Jonathan Paveley – executive chairman of Admiral Taverns.
 
Other top business people on the board include the chief executives of Ladbrokes, Betfair and William Hill.
 
“I am delighted to be asked to take the chair at The GREaT Foundation," Goulden said this week.
 
"GREaT does a huge amount of good work on behalf of the gambling industry and many people benefit from the GBP5 million+ raised each year. GREaT also has an important role to play with the Responsible Gambling Fund in ensuring that the money raised is spent wisely and that long term providers such as GamCare, The Gordon Moody Association and The Soho Clinic are properly supported.”
