The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has roped in Neil McArthur as its new chief executive with immediate effect. He has been working as the interim CEO after the departure of Sarah Harrison in February.

He has been recruited after what the UKGC described as a “thorough search and highly competitive process.”

“I’m looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead to make gambling fairer and safer,” McArthur said.

“I am really proud of the Commission’s achievements over the last 12 years, but there is a lot more to do.”

“Ensuring consumers are empowered to make informed choices about gambling while addressing and reducing the harms that can come from gambling is a challenge that cannot be overcome by us alone.

“It needs continued strong partnerships with other regulators, consumer representatives and government.”

“Most importantly, it requires gambling operators to treat their customers fairly and they can expect us to be tough but fair in making sure they meet their responsibilities.”

Bill Moyes, chair of the UKGC, added: “Neil’s appointment is great news for the Commission; he brings to the role a thorough understanding of gambling issues and regulation, along with proven commitment to making gambling fairer and safer.”

“I’m looking forward to working even more closely with Neil as he leads the Commission to make significant progress in raising standards, protecting consumers and the public from gambling-related harm and improving the performance of the National Lottery.’’
