Erwin van Lambaart has been appointed the new General Director of Casinos Austria AG.
He is currently CEO of Holland Casino and will move into his new Board of Management on 14 March 2022; effective from 1 April 2022, he will take over the position of General Director.
Since March 2021, when Bettina Glatz-Kremsner had announced she would no longer be available for a contract extension as General Director, the nomination committee has screened, examined and assessed numerous national and international candidates according to the criteria defined by the Gaming Act.
Out of a total of three applications "of excellent quality," Van Lambaart was unanimously voted as the best candidate to succeed Glatz-Kremsner.
The new General Director is a proven casino and gaming expert, having led Holland Casino through a restructuring and had made an important contribution in regard to positioning the company within the Dutch market.
Van Lambaart reflected: "Casinos Austria enjoys an excellent reputation in the international gaming industry, which we will continue to expand together with the managers and employees in the years to come.
"So, I'm really looking forward to the upcoming tasks. Together we will provide our guests and players with the best gaming experience, hospitality and entertainment, with a focus on the highest safety standards and responsible gaming.
"I will contribute all my experience to make a sustainable contribution to the well-being of the group of companies, together with the employees in these challenging times. It will be my great pleasure to live and work in Austria."
