Experienced senior executive Sara Pantzer and accredited financial counsellor Kylie Holford will both take on trustee roles with the RGF and offer advice on the funding of projects and services to support responsible gambling and reduce gambling harm in NSW.

Pantzer is a board director with more than 30 years of senior executive experience across a number of industries including pharmaceutical, biotech, telecommunications and finance, while she also served in ministerial advisory roles.

Holford is currently employed by a not-for-profit industry training provider and has been a counsellor in Central West NSW for almost eight years. She has experience in promoting responsible and sustainable gambling practices and has an understanding of the issues surrounding problem gamblers.

Meanwhile, as well as the two new additions, Anderson also reappointed Elizabeth Lyne as a trustee for a further term. Lyne is a senior financial professional who has served as a sitting member of the NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal (Guardianship Division) and conducted hearings throughout regional NSW.

In addition, it was confirmed that both Janett Milligan and Mark McCrindle would step down as trustees.

“I would like to acknowledge Janett and Mark and thank them for their significant contribution to preventing and reducing gambling harm in NSW,” Anderson said.
