Paying tribute to the work of Kenny Alexander who has today announced he is stepping down from GVC, Michael Dugher, BGC ceo, said:
“Kenny’s phenomenal achievements in business speak for themselves. He has grown a company into a FTSE 100 leisure and entertainment business under his outstanding leadership.
“Kenny helped create the Betting and Gaming Council because I know he understood that the whole industry needed to drive changes in the future and work for ever higher standards. And as a great horses and football man, he understood his customers and he brought that authenticity, directness and indeed an infectious sense of humour that we will all miss at the BGC. We wish him and his family all the very best.
“In Shay Segev, GVC have a super-talented successor to lead the company. He has a proven track record of running the major parts of the GVC business – from Ladbrokes/Coral migration to trading, customer service and their US venture. We look forward to working with him closely, not least on the Government’s forthcoming Review of Gambling”.
