Happy and safe holidays from the Gambling Regulator

18 December 2018

I wanted to introduce myself as the new Director of Gambling. I took over from Gareth Bostock in November. I will be acting in this role until April next year.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy holiday period. I hope you all get to spend time enjoying the weather in the company of friends and whanau. We have recently undergone a major transition in the way we operate. Over time, you will see these changes transform how we operate as a regulator. In the short-term, we will continue to work with you as we always have.

I am looking forward to 2019 and working with you all.  Stay safe and healthy.

Kind regards and best wishes
