The Government of Gibraltar has confirmed the appointment of Andrew Lyman as its new Executive Director & Head of Gambling.
Lyman who currently serves as Director of Group Regulatory Affairs for William Hill Plc is expected to take over the executive role in January 2018, replacing current incumbent Philip Brear who will serve as an advisor to the government of Gibraltar.
An industry veteran specialising in leadership advisory, public affairs and regulations, Lyman will lead Gibraltar’s regulatory guidance and stakeholder relationships as the British Overseas Territory prepares to introduce new industry policies, following its reform of the ‘Gibraltar 2016 Gambling Act’.
Confirming the appointment of Lyman, Albert Isola, Minister with responsibility for Gambling in Gibraltar said: “Andrew is very well known in the industry, here in the UK and further afield, as an authoritative voice on policy, regulation, public affairs and the operation and development of all aspects of remote and non-remote gambling.
“Gibraltar remains committed to supporting the gaming community and to providing the very best in remote and all other gambling services, safely and securely, and Andrew’s appointment reflects this commitment and determination to remain best in class.”
