Australia’s Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) has announced the appointment of Chris Muir as CEO following the retirement of its long-serving Chief Executive, Ross Ferrar.
Ferrar has led the GTA for 17 years in which time he has developed a strong record of advocating for its members in support of a robust and sound regulatory environment, the GTA said.
“I would like to thank Ross for his service to the GTA for the past 17 years,” said GTA Chairman Adrian Halpenny. “He has been a keen and steadfast advocate for the Association and its members and has had a distinguished career in the industry.
“The GTA will continue to participate as a voice of reason in the public discourse about poker machines and their role as a legitimate entertainment choice enjoyed by millions of Australians.”
Incoming CEO Muir joined the GTA in June after filling senior-level roles in both the NSW and Federal governments, including as a chief of staff to senior ministers and a senior official at AUSTRAC.
“I would like to thank Ross for the hard work and guidance he has provided the GTA for almost two decades,” Muir said. “I am excited to continue to work with the GTA members and our industry stakeholders to best represent them on issues pertaining to technical and regulatory matters and advocate strongly for them.”
