The UK Gambling Commission has announced the imminent departure of Andrew Lyman, a Director at the Commission responsible for Monitoring and Enforcement, who will be leaving shortly to take up a senior executive role with the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB).
"Having been involved in regulation for some years, I am looking forward to joining an organisation with a broad Golden Casino - USA Welcomecommercial focus.  This new role will provide an opportunity to develop my legal, negotiating and other skill sets in a challenging environment." said Lyman, whose remaining time with the Commission will be spent on internal project work, distinct from his current regulatory role. 
Gambling Commission Chief-Executive Jenny Williams said: “We are very sorry to see Andrew go but with his expertise and understanding of the Commission’s work he will continue to contribute to the promotion of socially responsible gambling in his new role at the ABB.”
Lyman's successor has yet to be named.
