Star Entertainment Group, one of the biggest casino operators in Australia, has announced that three more of its executives have handed in their resignations following the investigation in New South Wales.
The inquiry will decide whether Start Entertainment Group is suitable to keep its casino license for The Star Sydney, following revelations regarding possible money-laundering offenses at the property.
With public hearings unveiling more and more damning evidence, there is increasing pressure on the company’s executives. That led Chief Financial Officer Harry Theodore, Chief Casino Officer Greg Hawkins and Chief Legal & Risk Officer and Company Secretary Paula Martin to tender their resignations.
The company confirmed the departure of the three executives, which comes after former Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Matt Bekier left the corporation in March. After that high-profile resignation, Chairman John O’Neill took over as Executive Chairman until a new CEO will be recruited.
Star Entertainment Group added that the three executives will work with John O’Neill in the coming weeks to transition their responsibilities, while an executive search firm will begin looking for replacements.
