Australia’s Star Entertainment Group, the major casino operator, has appointed Zhan Spalding as general manager surveillance Queensland.
The move is seen as a commitment to meeting gender equality targets among the company’s senior management.
Spalding has over 30 years’ experience in the surveillance field and will have under her control surveillance at the two Star properties in the state.
She will be part of the team preparing to step up the procedures at Star’s Treasury, Brisbane, property and the new Queen’s Wharf Brisbane casino, due to open late next year.
Immediately, Spalding will be working on the surveillance procedures at the Star Gold Coast, now undergoing a $2bn expansion scheme.
Spalding’s career has seen her move from Prague in the Czech Republic to work in many jurisdictions around the world, including Morocco, Argentina, Venezuela, Romania, the UK and New Zealand before moving to Australia.
