Durham will join the company on 4 October 2021, with his position to take effect upon receipt of regulatory approvals. Alan McGregor will continue in the role as Interim Company Secretary until such time.

Commenting on the appointment, Crown Interim Chairman Jane Halton said: “Craig is an accomplished and experienced ASX listed company secretary, lawyer and governance professional with qualifications in Australia and the United States, and on behalf of the board of directors and management, we welcome Craig to Crown.”

Ward meanwhile will join the Board immediately upon the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. Based in Melbourne, she is currently Chair of ASX-listed companies Redbubble and MNF Group, and is also a Council member at RMIT University.

Halton commented: “I am pleased to welcome Anne as a director. Anne brings to the Crown Board rich experience from her extensive board and executive careers. Her appointment further strengthens the mix of capability and experience as we continue the refresh of the Board.”

Ward has expertise in various different sectors, including financial services, technology, healthcare, government, education and tourism. She holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Melbourne, and is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

“Crown has been an integral part of my home town Melbourne for many years and I am excited about the opportunity to make a contribution to the Board as Crown shapes its future,” said Ward. “I look forward to joining the Board as an agent for positive change and I am committed to supporting management in implementing the reform program and driving value for shareholders.”
