Ilkim Hincer (pictured), vice-president at Hard Rock Inernational, is the new chairman of the Canadian Gaming Association.
The CGA also appointed George Sweny, vice-president of compliance at Flutter Entertainment, as vice-chairman.
Said Paul Burns, CEO: “Ilkim has a strong tack record with some of the world’s largest gaming operators, both here in Canada and in the US.
“I look forward to working alongside him as we bounce back from the pandemic and position the CGA to capitalise on all of the technology, igaming and sports betting developments across Canada.”
Hincer and Sweny will join Danielle Bush, partner at McCarthy Tetrault, and Robert Scarpelli, managing director at HLT Advisory, who are secretary and treasurer respectively on the CGA board.
