Cook will replace Campbell on 1 January 2022, with the latter to retire from the Board to focus on other work commitments.

Cook was appointed as a Director of the SkyCity Board in June 2021 after obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals, and is currently the Chair of the Board’s People and Culture Committee, as well as a member of each of the Audit and Risk Committee and Governance and Nominations Committee.

He was CEO of Summerset Group Holdings Limited from 2014 to March 2021, having previously served as the company’s CFO, overseeing its transition to become a publicly listed company on the New Zealand and Australian stock exchanges.

Before joining Summerset in 2010, he was an Associate Director at Macquarie Group, while he is currently a Director of WEL Networks Limited and Winton Property Limited.

“We have made significant progress over the past year to refresh the SkyCity Board and I am delighted that Julian has been selected by the SkyCity Board to lead SkyCity as the new Chair from 1 January 2022,” said Campbell.
