Chief Executive Officer of the Year

2018 Winners

CEOs bear responsibility and risk while working to ensure that their company remains at the forefront of their industry. Our judges will be looking for an outstanding corporate leader and will recognise the chief executive who has done most to nurture a positive team culture within their company while navigating and responding positively to technological and regulatory developments across the land-based, lottery and online sectors.

What the judges will be looking for:

Outstanding leadership and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while growing their businesses and maintaining strategic direction. The ability to drive positive leadership contributions in the areas of social responsibility, responsible gambling, training, diversity and inclusion, and communicating values of sustainability both within the organization and more broadly, the judges will take into account both national and international organisations.
