Crown Resorts confirms Dr Ziggy Switkowski as Chairman


Following full regulatory approvals, Australia’s Crown Resorts has confirmed that Dr Ziggy Switkowski will be the company’s new Chairman, taking over from Interim Chair Jane Halton who will remain on the Board as an independent Non-executive Director.

Switkowski is currently Chancellor of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Non-executive Chairman of publicly-owned national broadband provider NBN.

Following a period when the company was subject to a Victorian Royal Commission inquiry, threatened with the loss of its licence for its Crown Melbourne site and then went through a Board and management restructure, the appointment of such a credible public figure as Dr Switkowski will mark a new chapter for the company, in which diligent regulatory observance will be an absolute priority.
