The Dutch Lottery’s supervisory board has appointed retired politician Alexander Pechtold as chairman. He replaces the outgoing chairman of the board, Jan Loorbach, whose tenure has come to an end.
Pechtold is currently general director of The Netherland’s central bureau for driving licenses. Before retiring from politics, he had a long career in the Democrats 66 (D66) party, including a 12-year tenure as a parliamentary leader from 2006 to 2018.
“It is an honor to be able to contribute to the future of the largest socially oriented, pre-Dutch gaming organization. The Netherlands Lottery has proven its position in the lottery market. With just as much energy and confidence, the Netherlands Lottery will also become active in the online gambling market with a responsible offer,” Pechtold said.
“The board and the entire management of the Dutch Lottery are happy with the arrival of Alexander Pechtold. He is introduced to a healthy and future-oriented organization, and we look forward to continuing to build on our position in the gaming market with the supervisory board,” Niels Onkenhout, CEO of Dutch Lottery, said.
