1/17/2012 : Former CEO of Gala Coral appointed chairman
The recently formed Microgaming Poker Network Management Board has announced the appointment of a chairman to head the collective of operators and Microgaming representatives that shape the development roadmap and operational rules of the network.
Dominic Harrison, the former CEO of the Gala Coral Group has been chosen for the post. Fresh from a year serving as the interim chief executive for Business in Sport and Leisure, he brings to the Network Management Board a wealth of experience in the online gambling industry, a statement from the software company said.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said of the appointment: “We have a tremendous amount of respect for Dominic and we were naturally delighted when he agreed to take the position of chairman to the Network Management Board. The NMB is the first of its kind in the industry, and we believe that with Dominic at the helm, it will remain market-leading far into the future.”
“When I was first approached by Microgaming about being the independent, non-executive chairman for their Network Management Board, I knew it was a project that I had to be involved in," said Harrison this week. "I strongly believe that the NMB is exactly what this industry needs, and I am very much looking forward to being an integral part of its success.”
