Ramsay named Alliance for Gambling Reform CEO in Australia

The board of the Alliance for Gambling Reform has announced Gordon Ramsay as its new CEO.

Australia

Ramsay was recently the ACT Attorney-General from 2016-2020, where he led significant reform, including implementing recommendations on institutional responses to child abuse.

He also championed a gambling reform agenda in the ACT which resulted in a more than 20% reduction in poker machines and regulatory improvements.

Before working for the ACT parliament, Ramsay spent two decades working in community services and advocacy; he was Executive Minister at Kippax Uniting Church for 19 years.

Board Chair, Sharon Dickson, said: “Gordon brings a wealth of experience that will further the Alliance’s work with our partners and community to reduce gambling harm, which is one of the most pressing public health issues we face as Australians.

“Gordon has a unique combination of experience in social justice and advocacy, as CEO in a services-based organisation, working with people with lived experience, and in gambling reform in the political arena. I’m excited about the change we will achieve with Gordon leading the organisation.”

Alliance Chief Advocate, the Rev Tim Costello, added: “We were so impressed with the ACT pokies buyback scheme announced early last year, and Gordon was integral to that move.

“To have successfully negotiated that says a lot about his ability to navigate the intricacies and difficulties associated with gambling reform in Australia.”
