Canadian Gaming Association appoints four new directors to board


The Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) has announced the appointment of four new members to its board of directors.

Scott Burton, chief executive of FansUnite Entertainment since its 2020 merger with Askott Entertainment, will join the board, as will Neil Erlick, chief corporate development officer at Nuvei.

Jeffrey Haas, senior vice president of international strategy for DraftKings, has also joined the board, alongside Chuck Keeling, executive vice president of stakeholder relations and responsible gaming at the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.

“That the CGA board added four new members is a testament to the Association’s exponential growth in 2021,” CGA chair Carrie Kormos said. “We welcomed 18 new members and diversified by adding sports betting and esports operators, payment companies and many non-gaming suppliers.

“This will provide the CGA with an opportunity to act as a convenor for the industry as a whole and build collaboration during this exciting period in Canadian gaming.”

CGA president and chief executive Paul Burns added: “These seasoned professionals have strong track records as trusted leaders in the gaming industry, and they will provide invaluable insight as we look to launch a regulated igaming market in Ontario and single-event sports betting across Canada.”
