Pursuant to NZX Listing Rule 3.20.1(a), SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited (SkyCity) advises that it intends to appoint Kate Hughes and Glenn Davis as non-executive directors to the SkyCity Board.

These appointments remain subject to approval by regulatory authorities in each of the gaming jurisdictions in which SkyCity operates, a process which normally takes some months to conclude. In the meantime, they will each be available to assist the SkyCity Board in an advisory capacity.

SkyCity Chair, Julian Cook, commented that “Kate and Glenn are experienced professionals and bring considerable expertise to the SkyCity Board across a diverse range of sectors and industries. We are delighted that they have agreed to join the SkyCity Board”.

“The SkyCity Board is working on a restructure of its internal Board committee structure and, as part of this, intends to appoint Kate as the Chair of a new Risk and Compliance Committee expected to be established later this year. Kate’s comprehensive experience in risk management, health, safety and environment, business resilience, crisis management, regulatory compliance, privacy and fraud prevention will be invaluable in this regard.”

“In addition to being appointed to the SkyCity Board, it is intended that Glenn also be appointed as a non-executive director and Chair of SkyCity’s Australian subsidiary, SkyCity Adelaide Pty Limited, given his expertise and experience in legislative compliance, risk management and corporate activity regulated by the Australian Corporations Act and the ASX” said Julian Cook.
