Microgaming’s Poker Network has announced the chairman of its vaunted Network Management Board (NMB). Dominic Harrison, former CEO of the Gala Coral Group, takes on the role immediately after a year serving as interim chief executive for Business in Sport and Leisure. The board is a collective of all operators on their network in the hope that it’ll foster more developments and tailor operating rules. Speaking of his appointment, Harrison said: “When I was first approached by Microgaming about being the independent, non-executive Chairman for their Network Management Board, I knew it was a project that I had to be involved in. I strongly believe that the NMB is exactly what this industry needs, and I am very much looking forward to being an integral part of its success.”
