Australia ASX-listed gambling group Tabcorp Holdings has confirmed that non-executive director Dr Ziggy Switkowski would be stepping down from the company’s board, with his retirement effective immediately.
Switkowski has held the position of non-executive director since 2006. During his tenure he served on several board committees, including as chairman of the People and Remuneration Committee.
Tabcorp Chairman Paula Dwyer stated: “Dr Switkowski has been a significant contributor to Tabcorp as part of a distinguished career in Australian business, more broadly.
“While we will miss his input and insights in Tabcorp Board deliberations, we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
At the end of last year, the gambling group confirmed that ‘finance pro’ Anne Brennan would be joining the company as a corporate non-executive director.
The appointment, which is subject to regulatory and ministerial approval, will mean that Brennan would be expected to serve as Tabcorp governance advisor.
Further executive experience has seen Brennan serve as Finance Director of digital retail solutions provider Coates Group and as a Senior Partner for two of the ‘big 4’ auditors KPMG and Ernest & Young.
