The International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR) has announced key leadership changes following its annual congress in Botswana, with Director of the UK’s Gambling Commission Ben Haden named President and Chief Strategic Adviser of the National Gambling Board in South Africa, Caroline Kongwa, the new Vice President. Haden takes over from Dr Jason Lane.
“During my two years of tenure, I’m determined to build on Jason’s great work while President,” said Haden. “It’s a challenging but exciting time to be in gambling regulation. We’ll be looking to encourage greater collaboration and the sharing of best practices across jurisdictions and partners, fostering a stronger sense of our community.
“IAGR would like to extend its sincere thanks to outgoing President Jason Lane for his two years of outstanding leadership. We’re very pleased that Jason will continue to be actively involved in IAGR, serving as an IAGR Board Trustee.”
