Marc Etches to resign as CEO of GambleAware. Marc Etches has declared at the end of March 2021 that he will step down from his position as GambleAware’s chief executive after nearly a decade in the role.
In his tenure as CEO, Marc Etches oversaw a significant rise in support and donations, and over the next four years, senior members of the Betting and Gaming Council recently pledged additional £ 100 m support.
The charity now has £40m of grant funding under active management and the additional pledged funding will help GambleAware to continue to develop the National Gambling Treatment Service with its partners across England, Scotland and Wales.
Marc Etches expressed “It has been an extraordinary privilege to serve as CEO for nearly a decade and I am enormously proud of the charity’s development and the contribution it makes, in partnerships with others, to keeping people safe from gambling harms.
Commenting on Marc Etches’ departure, Kate Lampard CBE, Chair of GambleAware said “It has been a pleasure working with Marc over the past four years and he has taken the charity from strength to strength. As a result of his hard work, GambleAware has developed the expertise and sustainability to continue to deliver and work with partners across the healthcare spectrum to prevent and protect against gambling harms. I look forward to continuing this important work with a new Chief Executive next year.”
The process to select a new Chief Executive will be led and overseen by GambleAware’s Board of Trustees.
