Sue Harley and Roger Parkes joins Gambling Commission
The UK Gambling Commission has moved to strengthen its senior team ahead of the implementation of proposed changes in the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill.
Sue Harley, customer services director Ladbrokes, and Roger Parkes, former director of group compliance at Betfair, will both work with the regulatory body to support its work in regulating remote gambling operators based offshore.
Harley will join the Commission on a fixed-term contract in early April and serve as an executive director. She will take responsibility for a broad policy and management portfolio.
Parkes is already working for the regulator by providing additional experience and input into its preparations for the new Bill.
Jenny Williams, chief executive of the Gambling Commission, said: “We are delighted to have Sue and Roger working with us. Their experience and industry knowledge will prove invaluable as we move towards implementation of the changes to remote gambling regulation.”
