SkyCity chairman retires at year-end

SkyCity Entertainment Group chairman Chris Moller has announced his retirement from the board, effective on December 31, 2017.

Mr. Moller was first appointed a director of SkyCity in December 2008, and was voted in as chairman in 2016.

“I am immensely proud to have led SKYCITY through this critical stage of its evolution. By the time I retire, I will have been a director of the company for 9 years and chairman for 5 years and I consider this to be an appropriate time in the case of SKYCITY to invite the Board to refresh its leadership. I have given the directors 6 months’ notice to allow for an orderly transition and provide continuity of leadership for our new chief executive officer, Graeme Stephens,” said Mr. Moller.

Taking his place will be Rob Campbell, who has been invited to become the chairman-elect until he takes over on January 1, 2018.

Mr Moller said he was pleased Mr Campbell had accepted the Board’s invitation to be the company’s chairman-elect.

“Rob has an excellent reputation and track record of management and governance of complex companies and I believe shareholders will share my delight that he has agreed to succeed me as chairman.”
