New Zealand’s Skycity Entertainment Group has announced its intention to appoint former Tabcorp Managing Director and CEO David Attenborough as a non-executive director, pending regulatory approvals.
In a Friday morning filing, Skycity said Attenborough would join the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity with 1 March 2023 touted as his likely start date.
“David has extensive gambling industry and corporate governance and sustainability experience which will bring considerable expertise to the Skycity board,” said the company’s chairman, Julian Cook.
Based in Sydney, Attenborough stepped down from his role at Tabcorp last year following the completion of a demerger from its lotteries business.
He had led Tabcorp for 12 years, having taken on the top job in 2019.
