This is a special award: Nominations are encouraged for individuals who have been in the compliance/regulatory sector for more than 20 years and whose input to the advancement of the culture of compliance and improvement of the regulatory structure has been outstanding.
What the judges will be looking for
A person who has consistently, across their career and the organisations they have worked for, led the way in compliance. This person could be a lawyer representing operators in the gambling industry, an individual from an operator who has promoted compliance in a positive way, a regulator who has engaged with the industry in a positive way, or a consultant who has advised the industry in a pro-active manner throughout their career (or a mix of all of these!). They will be looking for evidence of a gregarious individual with real character, and anecdotal references will be considered to support this.
