Alderney executive director to take ICGR role

The International Centre for Gaming Regulation (ICGR) will have André Wilsenach as its new executive director

US.- The executive director of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC), André Wilsenach, is to step down of his position in order to take a new role with the International Centre for Gaming Regulation (ICGR).

The AGCC informed that Wilsenach -who has been in the institution for 14 years- will serve as executive director of the ICGR, which is based at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in the United States. Wilsenach will remain with the body of AGCC until the end of January. Wilsenach explained that the decision to move has been difficult, given his “longstanding relationship with AGCC, Alderney and Guernsey.”

“I am extremely proud of Alderney’s standing in the world as a jurisdiction and pleased to leave the AGCC in the hands of a very professional and capable leadership. The position at the ICGR presents an exciting opportunity to apply my knowledge and experience of regulating both the terrestrial and online gaming sectors in promoting regulatory best practices around the world, and where better to do it from than Las Vegas, the capital of the gaming industry.” Wilsenach said.

The chairman of the AGCC, Lord Richard Faulkner, also expressed: “Whilst we are naturally sorry that André will be departing after 14 astonishingly successful years with us in Alderney, we are delighted that he has been sought out by the University of Nevada Las Vegas to set up and run such a highly prestigious academic centre. His appointment is a huge compliment to the quality and effectiveness of the AGCC’s regulatory régime, and to André’s achievement in helping to establish it. He leaves the Commission in excellent shape, and well able to face whatever challenges the future may bring.”
