Gambling compliance, law and business consultancy Senet has hired Daniel Lovecek, the former General Counsel of Wagering and Media at Tabcorp, to join its senior leadership team.
Joining former colleague Julian Hoskins at the gamlbing advisory firm, the duo will work to direct and lead complex commercial regulatory work, building on Lovecek’s experience in this role at Tabcorp.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Senet at such an exciting time in its growth,” Lovecek remarked. “It has been clear from the start that Senet’s plans have been developed with a paramount focus on client service and it has cemented itself in the industry and built a highly trusted brand.
“Senet has brought a fresh advisory proposition to the gambling industry, and I am so excited to be part of this especially at a time of growing activity in the sector.”
Prior to working together at Senet, Lovecek and Hoskins cooperated on a number of betting industry-related wagering and media issues for 10 years during their respective tenures at Tabcorp.
Senet was established by Hoskins in 2018 – in cooperation with ex-KPMG executive Alexandra Hoskinsafter – after vacating his position as Tabcorp’s General Counsel, with the goal of providing a compliance and legislative consultancy for Australia’s gambling industry during a changing regulatory environment.
Since its founding, the firm has moved to further bolster its leadership through a number of appointments, such as naming Paul Newsom as its new Head of Advisory Practice last year, whilst also launching accreditations for the Australian betting and gaming sector.
Commenting on the consultancy’s latest appointment, Hoskins added: “I’ve known Dan for many years, and he is highly regarded by the industry.
“Dan has a critical understanding of the complex issues wagering operators, regulators, race and sports controlling bodies and other industry participants face and joining the firm further strengthens and deepens our unique level of industry knowledge and expertise.
“We have developed a genuinely better advisory offering than the industry has seen before and we are confident that the outcomes and value we deliver for our clients is hard to match.”
