Most gambling companies prefer making internal promotions instead of hiring from outside. This is partly because of the technical know-how and experience the appointees hold in such positions.
One such company is Aristocrat Leisure Limited, an Australian-based online casino content aggregator. The company has revealed that Tracey Elkerton, their Chief Compliance Officer, has been promoted to the Executive Steering Committee (ESC). Elkerton will be reporting directly to the CEO, Trevor Croker.
Additionally, Elkerton has been a part of the Regulatory & Compliance Committee of the Aristocrat Board since 2004. And before joining Aristocrat, Elkerton had been engaged in compliance roles at Standard Chartered Bank Australia Limited and St George Bank Limited.
Following the appointment, Trevor Croker stated: “Tracey Elkerton’s appointment to our ESC is another step forward in Aristocrat’s long-standing commitment to excellence in governance and will help further strengthen our compliance culture. Tracey will bring a critical lens to all enterprise deliberations that will help us continue to make the right decisions in the short and long-term best interests of our business and stakeholders.”
Croker added that Elkerton has 25 years of experience in the gaming compliance sector and contributes regulatory and compliance knowledge to Aristocrat’s global perspective. The Aristocrat CEO said he looked forward to her immense contribution and congratulated Elkerton on her new appointment.
