To lead newly merged organisation
The Responsible Gambling Trust, a newly formed charitable organisation from the merger of the Responsible Gambling Fund and The GREaT Foundation, has appointed Marc Etches as its chief executive.
The organisation, chaired by Neil Goulden, is due for official launch in April 2012 and will adopt the fundraising and commissioning roles of the two merged organisations covering problem gambling education, prevention and support.
Etches said: ‘It gives me great pleasure to take on this new and exciting role.  As chief executive of the Responsible Gambling Trust, it is my intention that we continue to build on and maintain effective partnership working with industry executives and representation bodies; treatment service providers and the research community; as well as legislators and regulators to ensure that the national responsible gambling strategy is delivered successfully and that the Responsible Gambling Trust becomes the industry brand for responsible gambling.
