The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission has announced that it will be recruiting a new Chairman as the term of Claire Milne, a partner in Appleby (Isle of Man) LLC, an international provider of offshore legal, fiduciary and administrative services, comes to an end in July this year.

Mrs Milne, a partner in the firm’s Corporate and Commercial department, is recognised internationally as a leading specialist in Intellectual Property and the gaming industry.

Reflecting on Mrs Milne’s accomplishments at the head of the Commission, Chief Minister Allan Bell MHK said:

'As Claire Milne’s contract draws to an end, I wish to express my appreciation for the legacy she leaves behind. The Commission has a robust regulatory framework, is well placed to tackle the challenges ahead and the Isle of Man’s reputation as the premier licensing jurisdiction is firmly established.'

Under her leadership, the Gambling Supervision Commission has evolved from its place within Government to become an autonomous Statutory Board, introduced a number of legislative changes including the safeguarding of player funds, the introduction of network licences and new Casino Regulations, and signed its first international cooperation agreement. The Commission is now an active member of the international regulatory bodies Gambling Regulators European Forum (GREF) and International Association of Gambling Regulators (IAGR).

Mrs Milne commented:

'I have hugely enjoyed my time with the Gambling Supervision Commission and working with all the staff. It is just time to hand the baton on to someone else. I know that the Commission will go on from strength to strength and it will always have my support.'

Recruitment for her replacement as Chairman of the Gambling Supervision Commission begins next week.
