Finlay leaves role at Senet Group

05 April 2016

THE betting industry’s self-appointed watchdog the Senet Group is searching for a new chief executive following the resignation of Ron Finlay.

Finlay has led the Senet Group since it was set up in September 2014 to promote responsible gambling and police the industry’s advertising. He said he was stepping down to allow someone new to take the organisation forward. 
Finlay said: “Now feels like the time for someone new to take it on the next step of the journey. I wish Senet and the team well and look forward to seeing it grow further.”

William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral and Paddy Power – now Paddy Power Betfair – were the original members of the Senet Group and have since been joined by Scotbet and Sky Bet. The Senet Group’s chair and independent standards commissioner Wanda Goldwag thanked Finlay for his contribution in setting up the organisation, adding the search for his replacement would start this week.

She said: “Senet is moving on. We’re expanding, we have online members and have reached the point where we need a different sort of chief executive, and that is Ron’s view as well. “Ron’s background is in communications, marketing and health, and the role of chief executive is now becoming much more around managing the membership, growth and people.”
