Andrew Lyman, director of regulatory affairs at William Hill, has been appointed to head up Gibraltar’s national gambling regulatory body.
According to various media reports, Lyman will begin his new role in January and replace Phill Brear, who has led the division for 10 years.
However, Brear will still be involved with regulation in Gibraltar by moving into a new advisory role with the national government and the gambling division.
Albert Isola, Minister with responsibility for Gambling in Gibraltar, said: “Andrew is very well known in the industry here, in the UK and further afield as an authoritative voice on policy, regulation, public affairs and the operation and development of all aspects of remote and non-remote gambling.
“Andrew will now be driving the excellent work of the Gambling Division and enhancing that process; the government recognises that this area needs more resource and support and we are very fortunate to have Andrew joining us.
“Gibraltar remains committed to supporting the gaming community and to providing the very best in remote and all other gambling services, safely and securely, and Andrew’s appointment reflects this commitment and determination to remain best in class.”
The appointment comes ahead of the introduction of the Gambling Act Review, a series of new regulatory policies and codes that will be rolled out throughout next year.…
