Great Canadian Gaming Corporation is proud to announce the promotion of Mr. Terrance Doyle to the position of President, Strategic Growth and Chief Compliance Officer, effective March 11, 2019.

In his new role, Mr. Doyle will be responsible for planning and operationalizing current and future strategic growth initiatives undertaken by the Company, with a near term focus on growth in Ontario.  Additionally, Mr. Doyle will be responsible for the Company’s compliance regime, and will continue to pursue opportunities to further enhance the company’s regulatory framework as the Company grows.

Mr. Doyle will continue to report directly to Mr. Rod Baker, Chief Executive Officer, as well as having a direct reporting relationship with Great Canadian‘s Board of Directors, as required in his role as Chief Compliance Officer.

The Company’s operational Vice Presidents responsible for the day-to-day operations of its three business segments will now report directly to Mr. Baker and forms part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to developing strong leadership.

Mr. Doyle is one of Canada’s foremost subject matter experts in the areas of gaming developments, operational efficiencies and regulatory compliance. With over 22 years of experience in the gaming industry, Mr. Doyle has been directly involved in every aspect of the business, including most recently serving as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer and overseeing the Company’s dynamic growth during the Ontario Modernization initiative.

“On behalf of the Company’s Board of Directors, I’m very excited to announce this promotion. I have worked very closely with Terrance for the last 10 years and during that time he has gained extensive experience working with both regulators and crown partners, as well as his proven track record as an operator and casino developer. This experience makes him uniquely qualified to serve in these important new roles for the Company,” stated Mr. Baker.

The Company is also announcing the appointment of Mr. John Russo as Corporate Secretary, in addition to his previous duties as General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer.

Mr. Russo will continue to report directly to Mr. Baker, as well as to the Company’s Board of Directors.

Mr. Russo joined the Company in February, 2018 in the position of Vice President, Legal, Ontario, bringing with him over 10 years of experience and expertise in legal, privacy, regulatory, compliance and security, governmental and legislative relations. Mr. Russo is a member of the Law Society of Ontario.

“Today’s appointments are an important milestone and another significant step towards Great Canadian equipping itself to undertake the significant growth we are already experiencing, and achieving even more success moving forward,” concluded Baker.
