France’s new gambling regulator L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has announced a number of new appointments to its senior leadership team.
Officially launched this June, the ANJ will serve as France’s “single regulatory agency” for gambling, replacing ARJEL and further industry oversight responsibilities of the French Treasury and the Department of Agriculture.
Led by Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, the current ANJ Chairman and former French State Counsellor for data protections, the ANJ has been tasked with developing two new frameworks to prioritise consumer protections and the prevention of financial crimes.
Joining Falque-Pierrotin’s executive team, the ANJ confirmed the appointment of former French Treasury counsellor Rémi Lataste as the Director-General who will oversee the agency’s budget responsibilities.
The ANJ’s day-to-day operations and resources will be led by Olivier Tournut as Secretary-General. Tournut is the former Chief Administrator for France’s CNIL IT and data protections agency, the federal department formerly led by Falque-Pierrotin.
Supporting ANJ’s new regulatory mandate, Falque-Pierrotin confirmed that former ARJEL executive Jean Baptiste Menguy will continue to hold the position of HR Director for the agency.
